Tupelo Press Full Length Collection Open Submissions

Straight from the Site:

July Open-Submission Period for Poetry

Throughout July, Tupelo Press will hold open submissions for book-length poetry collections (48–90 pages). Please note that fiction manuscripts are now read year-round. See our website for submission guidelines.

Before submitting, ask yourself whether your manuscript is fully ready for publication. Keep in mind that this is not a contest, and that manuscripts submitted during our open submissions period are not read anonymously. We are looking for manuscripts we love and want to publish, yet Tupelo Press is under no obligation to publish any manuscripts submitted during our open-submission period. Historically, however, Tupelo Press has given contracts to between three and five poetry manuscripts submitted each July.

All manuscripts will be read and all decisions made by the editors of Tupelo Press. We will use no interns or outside readers.

We now accept online submissions for the July Open-Submission period.

See complete guidelines:
July Open-Submissions Guidelines
During the month of July, submissions are accepted from anyone writing in the English language (whether in the United States or abroad).

Make sure that your cover page includes the title, your name and contact information, including address, phone number and email address.

There is a reading fee of $25 for each manuscript submitted. Why a reading fee? We are an independent, nonprofit literary press. Reading fees help defray, but do not by any means cover, the significant cost of publishing the many books we select outside of our competitions. Multiple submissions are accepted, so long as each submission is accompanied by a separate $25 reading fee. Manuscripts that have been submitted during this open reading period (July 2010) may not be revised and submitted again unless they are accompanied by an additional $25 reading fee.

For Complete Guidelines and to learn how to submit your manuscript on-line go to:

*I think letting you know a few months ahead of time will give you time to explore Tupelo Press’ publications and gather up a collection that will fit their style, good luck to all of you who submit!
