If you have a manuscript you think might be right for Rose Metal Press, and it does not fit into the specifications for one of our reading periods, please send us a query via email, including a brief description of your project, a paragraph of biographical information, and a list of previous publications, if applicable. We read all queries with interest and respond as quickly as possible.
Email queries welcome.
Please do not send or email unsolicited manuscripts to the Press outside of the specified reading periods.
ANNUAL SHORT SHORT CHAPBOOK CONTEST
Each fall, we run a reading period for our short short chapbook contest. The winning chapbook is published the following summer. Entries should be 25-40 pages of short short stories, each under 1000 words. Check back in spring 2008 for the reading period and guidelines for the fall 2008 contest.
