Our open submission period for full-length poetry manuscripts, chapbooks, and pretty much anything you want to throw at us runs each year from March – June. Manuscripts to be published are announced by September. Our next open submission period begins March 1.


We’re looking for one title to add to our publication schedule for 2016-2017. “Anything you wanna throw at us” is our theme this year. That means chapbooks or full-length manuscripts of poetry. Short story collections. Novels. Comic books. Graphic novels. Experimental projects. This year, we’re ripping the rules up and letting you show us what you’ve got.

FIRST: Instead of a fee, we ask that you purchase any SRP title from the SRP store. Titles start at less than a dollar. The amount you spend in no way influences our publishing decisions, but it does support the SRP authors who may soon be your pressmates.

SECOND: Login to SUBMITTABLE. Upload your manuscript and in the space for a cover letter, tell us what title you purchased and why, and why we should publish your book. Interpret that question however you like. We’ll read your answer before we read your manuscript, so here’s your chance to make a first impression.

At this time, we are looking for one manuscript to bring into the SRP family for the 2016/2017 calendar, though we reserve the option to select more than one manuscript. We’ll announce the manuscript(s) in September.
