open reading period: Steel Toe Books
- Steel Toe Books selects manuscripts through open reading periods. Our
next open reading period will be October 1-31, 2008, at which time we
will be specifically seeking quality manuscripts containing
predominately formal poetry (sonnet sequences, blank verse, ghazals,
terza rima, sestinas, haiku, haiban, renga, etc.).
[Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
Are you tired of shelling out $30 fees for contests, waiting half a year or more, and then receiving nothing but (if you're lucky) a form rejection note? Wouldn't you rather pay $12 and get both a great book and a fair, decent shot at having your manuscript accepted for publication?
We are holding an open reading period for full-length (48-80 page) poetry manuscripts in September/October 2014.There is no reading fee, but we ask each poet who submits to support our press by purchasing one of our titles directly from us.
Send your manuscript, along with an order form (available at http://www.steeltoebooks.com/place-an-order?id=80) and a check to
