Call for Manuscripts

From our friends at Airlie Press:

Airlie Press is currently accepting submissions of book-length poetry manuscripts. The deadline for our open call is September 24, 2010.

We are seeking manuscript submissions from poets who live within a reasonable driving distance from the Monmouth area, where the press business is conducted.

Authors whose manuscripts are selected by Airlie Press must commit to responsibilities of the collective for a period of three years, including attending monthly meetings, and contributing at least ten hours a month to the collective-related work of editing, book production, and promotion. Authors’ books will be published during the second year of their commitment to Airlie Press, and will involve more time commitment from the authors. Authors have final say regarding the content and presentation of their books. All book profits will be returned to the collective.

Submission Guidelines:

Please submit two copies of your manuscript, which must be postmarked no later than September 24, 2010. Manuscripts received after that date will not be read. Manuscripts cannot be returned.

Manuscripts must be 65-80 pages in length. Manuscripts must be paginated, with a title page, a table of contents, and an acknowledgments page.

Your name and contact information must not appear anywhere on your manuscript. We are accepting blind submissions only.
