SEND US YOUR MICRO-CHAPS

Welcome back for another year of exciting new micro-chapbooks! As always, all of our micro-chaps are available for free download, but we highly encourage you to donate to our authors who get to keep 100% of the proceeds donated to their title(s). If you enjoy a specific collection, consider sending that author a few bucks, or follow them on social media. Many of our authors also have chapbooks and full-length collections published by other indie presses who could definitely use your support as well. The GCP Summer Micro-Chapbook Series is a chance for us (and for you) to celebrate and give back to the writing communities that make this corner of the internet so wonderful to be a part of!

If you’re new to the series, please check out our 2016, 2017, and 2018 collections to see what kind of work we’ve published in the past. These are generally pretty eclectic collections of writing, so whether your tastes run from traditional to experimental, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find something you’ll enjoy. Our annual series also provides an opportunity for you to read a sampling of new work from more than 70 established and emerging writers.

OUR 2019 SUBMISSION PERIOD RUNS FROM February 1st to March 1st

As always, we welcome collections of poetry, prose, or other multimedia work—the more creative the better. Co-authored collections are also welcomed. We have very few rules prohibiting what you can submit, but please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Micro-chaps should be no longer than 15 pages (of content)

  • Please send us a single PDF file

  • One submission per person, please!

  • Include a brief, 3rd person bio along with your submission

PLEASE SEND ALL SUBMISSIONS TO GHOSTCITYPRESS@GMAIL.COM
