PALOOKA PRESS SUBMISSIONS
We take great pride in reading every word and giving each chapbook its due attention. We consider manuscripts of all styles and genres and aren't looking for a particular aesthetic. We give everything a fair chance. Please send your best fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama, graphic narrative, or hybrid work. Manuscripts should be roughly 25-100 pages. Each submission comes with a digital gift of your choice: a chapbook, a copy of Palooka, or the editor's award-winning novel.
