ALL OTHER MANUSCRIPTS (updated September 2016)

From October 1 to November 1, Ugly Duckling Presse will be holding an open reading period for shorter works of poetry, prose, and hybrid writing to be published in chapbook form. In addition to English-language writing, translation submissions are encouraged.

Submit via Submittable here.

Submissions can be up to 25 manuscript pages, though we recommend keeping them shorter, between 15 and 20 pages.

In lieu of a cover letter, please send one paragraph about the manuscript and one paragraph about why you’re submitting it to UDP.

Accepted manuscripts will be published in 2018 and 2019.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed.

We will make our decisions by March 2017.
