Call for Submissions – Prose and Poetry

Breadline Press, a new publishing company based in the northwestern United States, has just announced that they will be putting together two anthologies of West Coast writing, one focused on Prose (both fiction and nonfiction) and the other for poetry. The details for submitting  are available below!

Call for Prose – Fiction and Nonfiction

Breadline Press is now accepting submissions for an anthology of West Coast prose, both fiction and nonfiction. By West Coast we include Washington State, Oregon, California, western Canada, western Mexico, Alaska, and Hawaii. English language only, please (for now.) We are always willing to read non-qualifying works if they are well written, but our preferences lie with our neighbors. (You could always consider moving!)

  • Please send previously unpublished works only. We will accept novel chapters if they are self contained.
  • No particular word count required (though keep in mind that this is an anthology.)
  • Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
  • Electronic submission only! Please submit in .doc, .docx, or .rtf formats, only. Include the text as an attachment with a cover letter. Include the word count in the cover letter, please, and a brief description of the work (fiction, essay, memoir, etc.)
  • Email submissions to:   breadlinepress@gmail.com
  • Submissions must be received by August 15th, 2010 to be considered for this anthology.
  • Payment for this project will be two copies of the anthology.

Thanks and good luck.

    The submission period is now closed. Brian S. and Richard Y. are currently in the process of reading through those submissions they received (there where MANY!!!) and will, hopefully, be announcing which items were accepted in December!

    Thanks to everyone who submitted materials!
