For all categories, think prose that makes you want to get up and walk across the country,
characters that make you want to shout at the pages in front of you,
settings that make you want to run through them.
A brief cover letter containing a third-person bio and a headshot is required. Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please withdraw your piece immediately using Submittable if it is accepted elsewhere (and congratulations!). Note: If you sent us multiple pieces and only one was accepted elsewhere, please add a note in Submittable instead of withdrawing the entire submission.
Multiple submissions are NOT okay. Please wait to hear back from us before submitting more work.
We will do our best to respond to submissions within one month. If you haven’t heard from us after a month, you may query editor [at] wildagepress.com on the status of your submission.
We charge a small submission fee to help cover the costs of Submittable, but will offer fee-free submissions in January, February, June, and July.
Simultaneous submissions are okay, multiple submissions are not. Response time is one month.
You have the option of purchasing a copy of RESTLESS Volume One and getting free shipping with your submission.
Wild Age Press seeks submission of fiction, poetry, and hybrid genre chapbooks of 20 to 48 pages. Chapbooks should be submitted as a single document with a table of contents and acknowledgements page, if applicable. Please double space prose and use a readable font such as Times New Roman or Arial. Individual pieces may have been published elsewhere, but the manuscript as a whole cannot have been previously published.
We're looking for daring novellas, challenging collections of short stories and poetry, and experimental work that doesn't fit a genre. We welcome translations; please include the original along with the English text. Read RESTLESS to get a sense for what we like and feel free to email editor[at]wildagepress.com with questions.
