Subito encourages work that challenges accepted literary modes; we look for new voices as well as previously published writers.
We publish two books of innovative writing a year through our poetry and fiction contests. All entries are also considered for publication with the press. We only consider unsolicited manuscripts through these contests; however, if you have a manuscript that you feel fits into our aesthetic, please query us via email.
Submissions are open annually during the month of July.
Beginning in 2013 Subito will accept manuscripts through our submission manager.
Subito Press adheres to the Council of Literary Magazines & Presses Contest Code of Ethics: CLMP’s community of independent literary publishers believes that ethical contests serve our shared goal: to connect writers and readers by publishing exceptional writing. We believe that intent to act ethically, clarity of guidelines, and transparency of process form the foundation of an ethical contest. To that end, we agree to 1) conduct our contests as ethically as possible and to address any unethical behavior on the part of our readers, judges, or editors; 2) to provide clear and specific contest guidelines—defining conflict of interest for all parties involved; and 3) to make the mechanics of our selection process available to the public. This Code recognizes that different contest models produce different results, but that each model can be run ethically. We have adopted this Code to reinforce our integrity and dedication as a publishing community and to ensure that our contests contribute to a vibrant literary heritage.
