We are currently open for essay collections/memoir/nonfiction-hybrid manuscripts!

Please follow us on Twitter for the latest updates on our submissions windows--we expect to be open for SHORT STORY/FLASH FICTION manuscripts in early spring, CHAPBOOK (both fiction + nonfiction) submissions in late spring/summer, NOVELLA/NOVEL manuscripts in the fall, and NONFICTION manuscripts in late fall/winter.


MS Submissions must include the following:


First, a cover letter to say hello and tell us about yourself. Just put it in the text box provided by Submittable. 


And secondly, we ask for a full manuscript, which is why there is a reading fee. The reading fee helps offset the many costs that accrue outside of printing books/paying our authors.  However, if the reading fee is prohibitive because you are having financial difficulties, please email a query to: splitlipthepress@gmail.com.


If you're still with us and think you've got the goods, feel free to SUBMIT.    


Decisions are tough, so allow up to two months after the submissions period closes for a reply for full-length manuscripts.


Any questions? If so, feel free to reach us by clicking CONTACT.

PLEASE DO NOT USE THE CONTACT FORM TO SEND US UNSOLICITED MANUSCRIPTS. Please also do not email prior to 2 months passing to inquire about your MS unless it has been accepted elsewhere. Thank you for respecting our (volunteer) time.
