Stillhouse Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


General Submissions are currently closed in all genres. We expect them to reopen Oct. 15, 2017.

We take time in considering all of our submissions and ask that you allow 6-9 months for a staff response.

All manuscripts should include a query letter, including a synopsis and an overview of the work. Authors are also invited to share information about their writing background, on-line presence, involvement with the writing community, and inspiration for their work.

Only complete manuscripts of literary fiction (either a novel or a short story collection; no genre), narrative non-fiction (a collection of linked essays or memoir), and poetry are currently being accepted. Our ideal manuscript is between 50,000 and 100,000 words of prose or 50-75 pages of poetry.

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