Steel Toe Books Open Reading Period

My collection Lightning and Ashes was published by Steel Toe Books, and I can't imagine a better press for anyone looking for a publisher. Really, I recommend Steel Toe to everyone I can.

Tom Hunley, the editor, is first-rate.

Here's his call for submissions.  (By the way, submitting is free.  You just have to buy one of the books Steel Toe has published.)



September/October Open Reading Period

Steel Toe Books is reading full-length poetry manuscripts during the months of September and October 2012. This is open to any poets, whether or not they have previously published books. We plan to extend a standard royalties contract, including a $500 advance, to at least one poet. This is not a contest and there is no reading fee, but we do ask everyone who submits to purchase one of our existing titles directly from us. Send your 48-80 page manuscript, along with a check and completed order form (available via the “Order” button on the left), to Steel Toe Books / Department of English / Western Kentucky University / 1906 College Heights Blvd. #11086 / Bowling Green, KY 42101-1086. Do not include a SASE. All manuscripts will be recycled, and our selections will be posted on this web site on or near New Year’s Day.
