FLASH FICTION/SHORT STORY MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS UPDATE:
We’re thrilled to announce the results of our 2020 flash fiction/short story submissions period! The SLP team selected Brett Biebel's 48 Blitz, a collection of stories set along I-80 in Nebraska, to be published this forthcoming December. We received MANY outstanding submissions and continue to be humbled and honored by the many authors who shared their manuscripts with us. Massive thanks to our flash fiction/short story reading team for all their time and effort!
NEW EDITORIAL TEAM MEMBERS AT SLP:
We're super super super happy to share with you all the new editorial team members who have joined our A++ board: Lauren Westerfield, who will be serving as our new Essay/Memoir/NF-Hybrid Editor, Kate Finegan is our inaugural Novel/Novella Editor, and David Wojciechowski is taking over the pivotal role of Book Designer. Please check out their bios on our Mission/Team page!
NONFICTION/HYBRID MANUSCRIPT UPDATE:
We’re delighted to announce the results of our 2019 nonfiction/hybrid submissions period. We will be adding TWO nonfiction books to our Split/Lip Press catalog: Athena Dixon’s essay collection The Incredible Shrinking Woman, which we will be publishing this fall, and Jeannine Ouellette’s essay collection The Part that Burns, slated for an early 2021 release. We received so many outstanding submissions—we’re knocked out by the quality of the work writers were willing to trust us with—that it was truly a challenge to keep it to two books. Huge thanks to our nonfiction/hybrid reading team for all their time and effort!
