Through June we're accepting book manuscripts to consider publishing next year.


There are no restrictions on your citizenship, legal status, or location, on your manuscript's genre, length, or whatever else they can think of. 


To emphasize: in addition to poetry, fiction, non-fiction, kid's lit, YA, translations, multilingual manuscripts that include English, visual art, hybrid work, etc., we invite submissions that challenge these normative categories. 


Please include a cover page with your title, name, email address, phone number, and address. Manuscripts are not read blind. 


No revisions to your manuscript will be accepted after you submit it. 


Simultaneous submissions are OK. If your manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere, congratulations! And please let us know.


Multiple submissions are OK as long as they're each submitted separately with a reading fee.

The Elephants publish heterodox materials and welcome submissions in all genres that help us reach that goal. Book-length manuscripts including novels, poetry, lyric essays, novellas, short story collections, translations, children's literature, hybrid and visual work, or anything else we can turn into a book...we want to read it.
