Anamcara Press is interested in previously unpublished poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. We appreciate pieces with a clear voice and strong vision. We accept manuscripts with or without an agent, from anywhere in the world. Whether you are a new author or have been previously published, Anamcara Press would like to hear from you. The review process can take up to three months. We will contact you once a decision has been reached.

What to include in your submission (these should be submitted in one word document or pdf):

  1. Cover letter: Your full name (and pseudonym if applicable), your address, telephone number, and email address (if you have one). Please tell us about your reader — the person who you’ve written for — how you expect to market your book, and what your qualifications are for writing this work. Also tell us why you think your submission would be a good fit for Anamcara Press.
  2. Synopsis: Please include in the synopsis an estimated word count for your complete manuscript (a synopsis is a brief overview of your work which should not exceed 500 words.)
  3. Your full manuscript. (If you mail your manuscript, please send a copy and retain your original document. Manuscripts will not be returned.)

Upload as a single Microsoft Word file or PDF that includes your cover letter, synopsis, and full manuscript.
