By Writing Knights Press


Projected Submission Call Duration (subject to change):

Submissions are CLOSED!

Submission Goal:

We will publish any and all accepted submissions. We are hoping to get at least 12. That does not mean if we only get 11 subs we will publish them all, they still have to be quality. If we get 24 brilliant submissions, we’ll publish them all.
Basically… send your best possible work…

Email Address:


Email Subject:
“Chapbook Submission – Pen Name”

Email Body:
Pen Name – Legal Name; Email Address; Titles of Pieces.
Also, please answer these questions:
1. Have you read a Writing Knights Press book before? Which book(s)? What did you think of the aesthetic, the content?
Note – Honest answers are encouraged. You do not have to like the book you read to be accepted to Writing Knights Press.
2. What lead you to submit to Writing Knights Press?
Note – Please provide a website or the person who suggested you send us your work.
3. What is your intended promotion strategy?
Note – Also, for your intended promotion strategy, please have something more than just “I’ll post it on my Facebook/Twitter.” Yes, do this, but plan to do some readings. We know it’s hard, but if you don’t believe in your work enough to take that step, why should we?
4. If you are rejected, do you want a critique or just the rejection?
Note – Critiques will not be extensive, we will probably just tell you things we liked about your submission in general, less what we didn’t like unless it was glaringly repugnant.
5. Where can you be found online?
Note – This includes social media, blogs and online articles. Basically if it’s you and it’s online, we’d like to know.

Email Attachment:
Manuscript – .DOC (97-2003) files Accepted ONLY.
If there are images in the manuscript, DO NOT embed the images in the manuscript (ask us how to denote where each image should be placed). Please attach all image files as: JPG (300 dpi) separately.
— NOTE — If the images are not attached separately, we will consider rejecting the manuscript because taking the images out of a manuscript, making them into usable images then replacing them into the final manuscript is annoying. If you as the author cannot respect our time as publisher, why would we give our time to your work? —


8.5″x11″ with 1″ margins.
Chapbooks may be poetry, prose, fiction, nonfiction and/or black and white photography.
Up to 25 page sample: any combination of Poetry, Fiction & Nonfiction.
Note – If there are any issues with the file format, contact Writing Knights before submitting.
