Markets listed on this page contain major publishing houses and small press, both print and electronic, that do not include a significant number of works written by the publisher(s), editor(s), or staff.

Read the complete guidelines carefully before submitting. If in doubt as to what is wanted, contact the editor. I do not knowingly list publishers who charge fees, but I stress that you should be very careful before entering into any contract with a book publisher. Read any contract thoroughly and never pay for any publishing service unless you are clear that the deal is with a reputable vanity press and know exactly what they will do (and what they charge) to edit, set-up, publish, and market your work. All authors, new ones especially, are encouraged to check with a literary attorney or agent before signing any publishing deal. US currency and addresses are used unless otherwise noted.

Contact with any editor or publisher is at the contributor's own risk. encourages all potential contributors to do a web search of the editor's and/or publisher's name before submitting to them. Each visitor assumes all risk associated with the use or misuse of the information here.
