Lucy, our submissions manager shown above, is hard at work reviewing the manuscripts we’ve received.
January 8, 2013 update: We’ll begin accepting submissions again on August 3, 2013. Lucy is looking forward to reading your masterpieces! What will she be looking for? Literary gems that express themselves as book-length poetry, story collections, and novels. Lucy has made it perfectly clear that she’s not afraid of work that is political, controversial, experimental, irreverent, subversive, satirical, or simply smart.
Starting on August 3, please submit your 10 poems or 5 short stories or the synopsis and first 25 pages of your novel at this link (which won’t work until August 3).
A Frequently Asked Question: Does Whitepoint Press publish genre fiction?
Whitepoint Press publishes fiction that complicates and disrupts genre conventions; we are excited about fiction that subverts clichés found in genre fiction. We do not get excited about fiction that reinforces and recreates those clichés.
October 14, 2012 update: Though Lucy’s literacy skills have improved dramatically in the last few months, she is swamped with manuscripts to read. While we are thrilled by your interest in Whitepoint Press, we need to temporarily stop accepting submissions. We will let you know when Lucy is able to read more of your works of art. Thanks again for visiting us!
