Good to know

We are actively seeking essay collections, poetry of all lengths, experimental, hybrids, literary novels, novellas, short story collections, memoirs, and nonfiction (literary criticism, history, cooking, health, science, and long-form journalism).
​With regards to nonfiction, we aren't looking for your every day nonfiction book...we want there to be an edge to it, so don't come at us with a book proposal you came up with for Random House.
No boilerplate genre fiction. Your book can be a mystery, but it shouldn't be a mystery novel. Maybe the character needs to solve a crime, but that facet is one piece of the whole book.
