Through June we're accepting full-length book manuscripts to consider for publication next year


There are no restrictions on who can submit or what can be submitted


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


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; please include the title in your cover letter. All fees go entirely toward publishing books


No revisions to your manuscript after you submit it


Simultaneous submissions are OK


Multiple submissions are good if you submit them separately


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

The Elephants publishes heterodox materials and welcomes submissions in all genres that help us do that. Also, please submit your manuscript as a PDF.
