Our Calls for Submission
Call for Manuscript
Plur·al·ity Press seeks an unpublished work of poetry that includes—in a particularly novel fashion--image as part of the text. Individual pieces may have been published previously; however, we are seeking a work unpublished as a whole. Collaborative work between two artists is also welcome.
We seek no more than 50 – 60 manuscript pages (one poem per page, double-spaced in either Times New Roman or Calibri font).
The selected manuscript will receive the following: 50 first edition traditional print copies, a second run of 200 copies and a sponsored reading and book launch. There is a $5 fee for submission.
In the artist statement or cover letter, please specify if the typography is specific to the work in some unique way as we may request an addendum to include a sample of the work in the form the writer(s)/artist(s) intended.
Extended Deadline: September 15th, 2017.
The winning manuscript will be announced December 1st, 2017.
