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 good if you submit them separately

The Elephants publish heterodox materials and welcome submissions in all genres that help us do that. 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. (Please submit it as a PDF.)
