Treating each book as a work of art, Unleash Press publishes a limited number of single-author manuscripts each year, along with a themed anthology. We are looking for manuscripts of fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry that reflect diverse experiences and perspectives. 



Open submissions are currently closed. We are only open to Book Prize and Work Anthology submissions. We will reopen to queries in Spring 2023.
