Submit Your Work


From June 1 to June 30, 2023, we will be holding an open reading period for full-length hybrid and cross-genre manuscripts for consideration for publication in 2024 and beyond. We are interested in flash fiction; prose poetry; novels-in-verse and novel(la)s-in-flash; flash nonfiction or memoirs-in-shorts; fragmentary works and lyric essays; image and text works; hybrid col­laborative works; and other literary works that move beyond traditional genres to find new forms of expression. We welcome submissions in all styles and on all subjects, and encourage a broad and expansive interpretation of hybridity. Surprise us with your innovation! For examples of the kind of work we have accepted in the past, please visit our catalog.

Manuscripts should be 48 pages or longer. Submissions will be accepted via Submittable with a $15 reading fee. Visit our Submittable page here.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of our donors, we are able to offer a waived reading fee for 20 BIPOC writers who’d like to submit to our reading period. If you are interested in one of the sponsored submission spots, please email us at rosemetalpress @
