Augury Books Is Open for Submissions
I am delighted to announce that Augury Books will be holding an Open Reading Period from January 1st through January 31st, 2018. During this time, we will read poetry, short story, and creative nonfiction manuscripts and anticipate choosing one title from the work submitted to us to have a projected publication date within 18 months of selection. Authors at any stage of their career are encouraged to send us their work. We are passionate about reading open submissions manuscripts—discovering and falling in love with new work is one of the great joys of editorship.
Previous Augury Books titles selected through our open reading period have, after publication, become Small Press Distribution bestsellers, as well as finalists for the Lambda Literary Arts Award (Poetry), the CLMP/Firecracker Award (Fiction) and have won the Great Lakes College Association “Discover” prize (Creative Nonfiction). Our titles are distributed through Small Press Distribution (SPD) and are available at many bookstores as well as online. Augury Books is a proud member of CLMP (the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses) and in fall 2017 we became an imprint of Brooklyn Arts Press.
If you or anyone you know has a manuscript that you think might be a good fit for us, please check out our guidelines for submission and a link to submit work at http://augurybooks.com/submissions/ and if you could pass this email along to other writers you know who you think might be interested, I would be deeply appreciative. Thank you and happy New Year!
