Essay Press is dedicated to publishing artful, innovative, and culturally relevant essays in book form. We are interested in publishing single essays that are too long to be easily published in journals or magazines, but too short to be considered book-length by most publishers. We are looking for essays that have something to say—essays that both demand and deserve to stand alone. We particularly welcome work that extends or challenges the formal protocols of the nonfiction essay—including, but not limited to, lyric essays or prose poems, experimental biography and autobiography, innovative approaches to journalism, and experimental historiography. We are currently accepting submissions of essays ranging from roughly 40 to 80 pages, and we will be reading from June 1 to September 1. We do not publish scholarly or academic writing and we prefer to consider complete manuscripts rather than proposals or excerpts.
