C&R Press is open for full length manuscripts

1 August 2017

C&R Press is open for full length manuscripts in all categories for our 2017-18 catalog. Novels, poetry, short story collections, creative non-fiction, memoir, experimental and hybrid work. 

C&R Press submissions are open for our Winter Soup Bowl Chapbook and New York reading series. 

C&R Press is engaging more than ever in our community, seeking diverse and submerged voices, hosting readings and events at festivals from the Brooklyn Book Festival and the Miami Book Festival, to Sewanee and the Texas Book Festival, to off-site gatherings at AWP. (Next Spontaneous Literary Mixer is 9/16/17 in NYC – Concrete&Water). 

C&R has never held a formal reading period. We accept work that will hold people’s attention for years to come. It’s true that not all submitted work can be taken for publication, but please know each contribution helps support our cause (we’re poets and writers, too!)—which is to celebrate and promote literature. The funds created by the reading period go toward one goal: the creation of author-friendly contract models and opportunities to market and promote essential literature. 

We look forward to seeing your work!

*Please note that for work we’ve classified In Progress we do not allow edits or changes to the manuscript. 

Entries to our Summer “Tide Pool” Chapbook Series are open from the Summer Solstice (June 21) to the Autumnal Equinox (Sept 22). 

In Spring 2018 C&R Press will publish 1-3 chapbooks of poetry, short stories, or other types of literary or mixed work. Summer Tide Pool Chapbooks of poetry are between 20-40 pages, and chapbooks of fiction, creative nonfiction, essays and mixed work are between 25-60 pages not including front matter. There are entry fees. Manuscript authors selected for publication receive ten copies of the book, $100 dollars and a reading in New York City. 

We are looking for work that is developed, polished, and has a strong singular voice. We encourage emerging and established authors in the manuscript process to submit their best work. 

Please visit our Submittable for all submissions or our website for more information at:
