SOHO CRIME PRESS
Soho Press primarily publishes fiction, with the occasional autobiography or cultural historical account. Completed manuscripts should be 60,000 words or more. While many of our published works arrive here through agents, we place a high priority on publishing quality unsolicited materials from new writers. Though eager to accept a wide range of literary fiction, we do not consider formula fiction, young adult dramas, stock romances, juvenile literature, short story collections, cookbooks, how-to books, self-help, fantasy, and anything that might recommend itself as a “quick read.” Further, we do not consider electronic submissions.
COFFEE HOUSE PRESS
Coffee House Press will only accept submissions during two annual reading periods: March 1 – April
30 and September 1 – October 31. Coffee House Press publishes literary novels, full-length short story collections, poetry, and a small number of essay collections and memoirs. CHP does not accept submissions for anthologies. CHP also does not publish genre fiction such as mysteries, Gothic romances, Westerns, science fiction, or books for children. Please note: Coffee House Press is not currently accepting unsolicited poetry submissions.
Algonquin Books publishes literary fiction and nonfiction. We don’t publish poetry, genre fiction (romance, science fiction, etc.), or children’s books.
