Route 7 Press seeks poetry

web site

Deadline: March 31, 2020

We are not looking for any gratuitous violence or sex or any work that is misogynistic, racist, or homophobic. Having said that, we are okay with POVs who are pushing back against those issues.
Simultaneous submissions to other publishers or contests are permitted, as long as you notify Route 7 Press promptly if a manuscript is accepted elsewhere.

Selected chapbook manuscripts have a small print-run (100 – 120 copies), and authors receive 20 copies plus $200 payment, paid upon publication. Authors retain all rights to the text material within the author’s chapbook.

Selected full-length manuscripts have a first print-run of 200- 300 copies , and authors receive 20 copies plus $400 payment, paid upon publication. Authors retain all rights to the text material within the author’s book.

We aim to answer all submission emails within 6 months of its submission date.
Once a chapbook, book, or art is selected, we will close submissions immediately for that category, or by March 31, 2020.

ANY SUBMISSIONS SENT BEFORE SUBMISSIONS OPEN WILL NOT BE READ.
We look forward to reading your work!

Poetry Chapbook Guidelines:

The Route 7 Press poetry team welcomes submissions from anyone writing in the English language, whether living in the United States or abroad. We do not wish to see Translations at this time nor are we interested in previously self-published books. Poets submitting work for consideration may be published authors or writers without prior book publications.

Submit a previously unpublished (as a whole), chapbook-length poetry manuscript with a table of contents. Ideally, we are seeking a chapbook of 18 to 35 pages, but all manuscripts will be read and considered with full respect, regardless of length, and no manuscript will be rejected simply because it’s shorter or longer.

Individual poems in your manuscript may have been previously published in magazines, journals, or anthologies, or chapbooks, but the work as a whole must be unpublished. If applicable, include with your manuscript an acknowledgments page for prior publications.

Simultaneous submissions to other publishers or contests are permitted, as long as you notify Route 7 Press promptly if a manuscript is accepted elsewhere.

We will select a manuscript for publication by April 2020. The chapbook selected at this time will be published by the end of 2020.

To submit please your submission to: route7subs@gmail.com.

The subject line should read: Author Name & Title
