Thank you for liking us enough to submit! We're grateful that you're considering us as a home for your work. We accept submissions through our Submittable platform only. 

General submissions in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, comics, and translation are open November 1 - March 1 and June 1 - September 1. 

To cover operational costs, we must charge a $3 fee for each submission. If, for reasons of financial hardship, you cannot afford to pay the submission fee, please send us an email at erica at anomalouspress dot org.

We strongly encourage you to take a look at http://www.anmly.org to see previous issues and see if you think your work is a good fit.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but we ask that you notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. You can use this handy system to withdraw, or leave a note on your submission.

We only consider previously unpublished work. That includes work published on personal blogs, sorry. We're especially interested in work that uses the medium of the web as part of its compositional strategy.

We aim for a two-month response time, but we're only human. Because we're an all-volunteer organization we try our very best to offer a fair turnaround time, about three months. For any genre other than poetry please drop us a line if you haven't heard from us within three months. For poetry submissions, we can't respond to individual inquiries: if you haven't heard from us yet, it's because we're still working on your submission. We get over 500 poetry submissions every period and are spending time reading each one carefully.

Send us your best, most challenging work through Submittable today.

There's always a lot brewing at Anomalous Press, so sign up for our email newsletterfollow us on Twitter, or like us on Facebook.

Please submit comics (or comics-like hybrids) ranging anywhere from one to twenty-five pages.
Anomaly features three special sections, that we call folios, in each issue, and between issues. To propose a theme or topic for an upcoming folio, please submit a brief, 500-word description, making sure to specify what genres will be included in the content of your folio, and the names of some potential contributors (you do not need to already have content selected, just a few names as examples!). 

Folios are reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Anomaly is currently seeking impact poetry. We are seeking poems that challenge the history and currents of the English language, poems that unsettle cultural norms, poems that utilize language to contest and remake the world. We seek poems that confront gender formations, white supremacy, class, body, possibility. We are seeking for poetry rooted in the radical imagination. We hope to find you.

Please be aware that we get over 500 submissions per reading period and read each carefully, so if you're work has not been accepted or rejected it's not from oversight-we promise we're working on it!

Attach up to five poems in a single document. Please include a short bio in the "Cover Letter" field.

Translations that foreground the work of the original author are welcome in this category. For translations that foreground the creativity of the translator, please see our Translation section.

Translation at Anomalous Press seeks not only to publish literary work in translation, but to be translation-forward. We're excited about a wide range of submissions, but especially compelled by work that expands our literary, linguistic, or cultural horizons; work that knows translation is a conversation; important voices that have been marginalized; voices too contemporary, too rooted, or too resistant to have yet reached English-reading ears. So show us the world.


For the upcoming issue, Translation is especially interested in your RESISTANCE. Send us work that is recalcitrant, wayward, rebellious, whether formally, linguistically, politically, generically, or in some clever way that hasn't occurred to us yet.


Prose: Up to 5000 words, double-spaced in 12-pt font. Stand-alone excerpts of longer works are welcome.

Poetry: 1-6 poems, or up to 10 pages.


At the top of the first page, you must include the following header:

Title

Author

Translator

Word count.


Strongly recommended: a brief cover letter that contextualizes the text, author, and/or translation process. If accepted, we ask that this be revised.


Please submit your work in a .doc or .docx file (no frames or text boxes, please). Translation should be named "Translator Last name_Author Last name_Brief Title." Your translator's note, "Translator Last name_Author Last name_Note."


Translations should not have been published previously, and Anomalous Press requires translators to clear all rights prior to submission.
