Throughout the month of July, Tupelo Press is holding open submissions for book-length poetry collections (48-90 pages) and chapbook-length poetry collections (28-47 pages). July Open Submissions provide the lion’s share of what Tupelo publishes annually. Selected manuscripts will be published and distributed by Tupelo, with energetic publicity and promotion.
New this year, we’re celebrating our joint venture with 3: A Taos Press, with the July Open submissions to be read and selected by Andrea Watson, Publisher of 3: A Taos Press, and Veronica Golos, Director of Acquisitions for 3: A Taos Press.
