Arc Pair Press publishes prose in perfect-bound mini-books and reviews of chapbooks on our blog. The reading period for mini-book manuscripts runs from February 1 to May 1. We take rolling submissions for reviews.
MINI-BOOK SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: We publish short collections, or single pieces of writing,
such as novellas or long essays. If the manuscript is a collection, individual pieces may be published elsewhere,
but the manuscript as a whole must be unpublished.
Manuscript Length: roughly 40 – 100 pages
Printed copies: 150 (first run)
Payment: $150 + 10 copies
Rights revert back to the author.
Initial printing is 150 copies: we'll be happy to negotiate reprinting on a case-by-case basis.
There are no reading fees on submissions, but we'd love it you bought a book.
Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
CHAPBOOK REVIEW SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: We publish reviews of chapbooks of any nature from any press other than ours on our blog. A WORD ON REVIEWS: We are okay with publishing negative reviews of chapbooks by established writers. Reviews are part of the critical discourse about art. BUT, we are not interested in publishing negative reviews of work by emerging writers. Nobody needs negative critical commentary at the beginning of their careers. With that said, we are not asking you to see the light and find something good to say--simply, if the work isn't good, don't review it.
