Coffee House

Submissions closed.
Reopens in 2018.

We tend to cultivate books from writers with whom we've developed a relationship through our chapbook series, pamphlet series, or elsewhere; however, please don't let that stop you! Say hello, introduce yourself and send us a query that includes your bio. Allow up to six (6) weeks for a response.


Chapbook Series

Submissions closed.
Reopens in July 2017.

The Tattered Pages chapbook series is an intentional experience, from the writing to the editing and layout process to hand stitching each work. Please send up to 28 pages of your poems, prose, essays or hybrid work in a pdf or word document. Also include a cover letter with your bio and a brief chapbook description.


Pamphlet Series

Submissions closed.
Reopens in September 2017.

A meditation on reciprocity and community, each year the Panthalassa pamphlet series poses a question. "Answers" can be in the form of essays, poems, or critiques and are featured each month throughout the year. The project culminates in a book art project. Read the prompt, then send us up to 10 pages of your work.
