NOW through November 19, 2023

Meekling Press is currently open for submissions through November 19, 2023. We will be selecting two manuscripts to publish as perfect-bound (i.e. paperback) books during our upcoming season. Send us book-length manuscripts that play with the relationship between text and image, between text and text, between image and image. That being said, we also welcome manuscripts that can be clearly defined as poetry / prose / hybrid work. If you’re unfamiliar with Meekling Press, please look at our website to get a sense of our past books and projects.

Send submissions to

Please also include a brief summary of the work in the body of your email.


FORMAT: There is no set minimum or maximum manuscript length, but books, as a general guideline should be at least fifty pages paginated.

AUTHOR COMPENSATION: We are not able to offer monetary compensation, but we do provide 25 free copies of the book to the author.

SIMULTANEOUS submissions are acceptable. We prefer that you select and submit only one manuscript during the reading period unless additional submissions involve collaborators, or different collaborators if both manuscripts are collaborative— in which case, please send each manuscript in a separate email.
