Our aim is to release 20 individual or collaborative book projects and a special 20th Anniversary Anthology comprising short stories, essays, and poetry.  We will close this process on August 30, 2023. 

Book Projects: We are actively seeking diverse and inclusive book manuscripts that offer a fresh perspective on one or more of the following aspects: genre, plot or topic, characters, culture or traditions, illustrations or photography, or the author/artist themselves. Our interest extends to adult fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, as well as youth/young adult fiction or non-fiction. Furthermore, we warmly welcome submissions of children's books. To submit your work, please provide a complete and final edited manuscript in either a Word document or PDF format attached to an email. Ensure the subject line of the email reads "manuscript."
