EastOver Press publishes collections of short stories, essays of many formats, and poetry. We read and respond to manuscripts on a rolling basis during specific submission windows.
We occasionally hold contests—the EastOver Prize for Fiction and the EastOver Prize for Nonfiction. The winners of these contests are offered publication with EastOver Press. You can subscribe to our bi-monthly newsletter to receive an alert in your inbox when we open to submissions.
We are currently accepting short story submissions for a forthcoming rural writers of color fiction anthology.
We also welcome unsolicited work for our literary journal, Cutleaf, in original prose (both creative nonfiction and fiction) and poetry.
EastOver Press specializes in publishing collections of short stories, essays, and poetry in a format that honors both the writing and the writer. We are excited to feature established writers, but we are just as excited to discover emerging writers. We are particularly interested in work by writers historically underrepresented in literary publishing: BIPOC, people with disabilities, gender-nonconforming people, LGBTQIA+, women, and others.
If you’d like to get in touch unrelated to submissions, send us an email message and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.
