Through the end of June we're accepting full-length book manuscripts to consider for publication in 2023.


There are no restrictions on who can submit or what can be submitted. We especially invite submissions that challenge normative genres, including generic behavior.


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


The $15 reading fee comes with a book of your choice. International writers will receive a free e-book. All fees go entirely toward making books. Please include the title of the book of your choice in your cover letter and let us know if you're submitting from abroad.


No revisions to your manuscript after you submit it. Simultaneous submissions are OK. Multiple submissions are good if you submit them separately. Please submit a PDF.


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

The Elephants publishes heterodox materials as acts of love and solidarity with the communities that write them. We welcome submissions in all genres that help us do that. Also, please submit your manuscript as a PDF.
