BEFORE YOU SUBMIT – READ THIS
We’re pretty new as a publishing house, but so far, so good. We’re growing, and we like authors who want to grow with us. Authors who aren’t scared of promoting their work. Authors who have a sense of humor. Authors who want to be actively involved in the production and marketing of their book. Authors who want to be rock stars.
If you want to know what we’re like to work with, track down our authors. Ask them what it’s like to work with SRP. Ask them about Bryan and Seth. Ask them if they feel respected. If you want to know the kind of work that captures our attention, buy one of our books. Or two or three.
Poetry will always be the centerpiece and foundation of Sibling Rivalry Press. We will publish multiple chapbooks and/or full-length collections of poetry each year. What we like: POETRY THAT MAKES US FEEL LIKE WE’VE BEEN STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. It’s as simple as that. Do we care if it’s been previously published on your personal website? No. Do we care if it would make your grandmother blush? No. Do we care if it’s political, erotic, feminist, LGBT-oriented, makes us squirm, makes us uncomfortable, or makes us weep? No, so long as it makes us FEEL. Do we believe poetry can save lives? Yes.
