$5 submission w/ chapbook

We are accepting full-length manuscript submissions this November. If you would like your work to be considered, please send a .doc or .pdf of 60-120 pages to with the subject line formatted "LAST NAME, TITLE OF MANUSCRIPT." We welcome works in English translation and from authors who live outside the US.

Publication will consist of an initial print run of 500 copies; the author will receive 10 copies gratis. We are also proud to offer a modest advance and royalties, commensurate with our belief that artists deserve to be compensated for their work.

There is no fee to submit to this open reading period, but if you would like to contribute $5, we will send you a selected After Hours chapbook. 

We will respond to all submissions by March 2019. Thank you in advance for giving us the opportunity to read your work.

With every good wish,

Eric Amling &
Sarah Jean Grimm
