Our submission period for full-length poetry manuscripts, chapbooks, and pretty much anything you want to throw at us runs each year from March 1 through June 1. The manuscript(s) to be published will be announced by October each year. Added bonus: As the Library of Congress has acquired all SRP books, the selected title(s) will reside among history’s greatest writers—in perpetuity—in the Rare Book and Special Collections vault in the world’s biggest library.
SEE THESE FACES? These writers could be your pressmates! (Pictured: Theresa Davis, Bryan Borland, Kaveh Akbar, C. Russell Price, Casey Rocheteau, Emily Jaeger, Tina Parker, Collin Kelley, Brent Calderwood, and Megan Volpert, in simultaneous readings in New York and Atlanta on July 26, 2016.)
