From February 15 through March 30, 2011, Rose Metal Press will be actively seeking full-length hybrid and cross-genre manuscripts for consideration for publication in 2012. They are particularly interested in short short, flash, and micro-fiction;Â prose poetry, novels-in-verse or book-length linked narrative poems; flash nonfiction or book-length memoirs in shorts; and other literary works that move beyond traditional genres to find new forms of expression. The best way to see what they mean by hybrid is to take a look at theirÂ catalog. Rose Metal Press welcome submissions in all styles and on all subjects, and encourage a broad and expansive interpretation of hybridity.
Please email your manuscript of 48 pages or moreâ€”double-spaced for prose, single-spaced for poetry (or both, if itâ€™s mixed)â€”between February 15 and March 30 with a $10 reading fee paid via our website (the payment button will appear when the reading period opens). Please also include an acknowledgments page of where individual pieces have been published, if applicable, as well as a brief author biography. They welcome submissions from outside of the U.S. and Canada, and ask that interested submitters from outside the U.S. and Canada simply use the â€œDonateâ€ button on theÂ Support RMP page to pay their fee. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate toÂ email Rose Metal.
