We’re looking for manuscripts that captivate us, make us feel, and refuse to let go long after we’ve finished reading. 

Stillhouse is currently reading for novel-length fiction and poetry, driven by voice and built on a strong compositional foundation. We are not necessarily looking for work that fits strict traditional modes, and especially enjoy familiar subjects presented through unfamiliar perspectives, or those which defy easy categorization or definition. No conventional genre fiction, please.

** Please note: We are not currently reading for short story collections; manuscript submissions that do not
meet current submission guidelines will be automatically declined.**

For more information about Stillhouse Press and our submission guidelines, please visit: www.stillhousepress.org/submissions

Only complete manuscripts of fiction will be considered; no genre, please.

Our ideal manuscript is between 50,000 and 100,000 words of prose.

Please attach your query letter and your submissions either in PDF or Word .doc formats.

We take time in considering all of our submissions and ask that you allow up to 6 months for a staff response.
