Conundrum Press is now accepting submissions!
Conundrum publishes poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction — both essay and long-form works — primarily from authors who live in the Rocky Mountain region. As we branch out from poetry into other literature, we’re looking for thoughtful, provocative, and lucid writing that tells a compelling story.
We are looking specifically for literary novels with universal themes and focused essay collections.
General submission guidelines
Manuscripts should be submitted as a Word document, along with a cover letter describing your work’s themes and your publication history, as well as links to any social media (twitter, tumblr, blogs, etc.) you may use.
Manuscripts should be double-spaced with ample margins.
All manuscripts will be accepted as email attachments only, no hard copies, and don’t embed your submission into the body of the email.
Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please inform us if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
If you do not hear back from us after 3 months, feel free to inquire via email. If you do not hear back after 6 months, it is safe to assume your piece has been declined.
Email your submission (as one attachment) to email@example.com.
We look forward to reading your work!
