Special Wednesday Call for Submissions
Nonfiction writers! Poets too! Got a chapbook? Send it in!
Only 1 week left to submit!
“We are looking to add four more chapbooks: two of poetry (of any kind), two of prose (fiction, nonfiction, hybrid, cross-discipline, multigenre).”
“We encourage women writers, non-binary writers, trans writers, and writers of color to send work.
We are looking for work that is experimental or conceptual without a disregard for embodiment.
We are looking for work that is socially aware and alive.
We are looking for work that feels like springtime.
We would love to see work about faith, religion, science, nature, history, power, philosophy, politics, art.”
MIEL was established in 2011 to promote and publish difficult, innovative, intelligent, and deeply felt writing and visual art.
As a small, independent press, we exist because of subscriptions and book sales. You can support us by purchasing books in our shop.
We read manuscript submissions in June via Submittable. We read work for our biannual literary magazine 111O much of the year.
We will read work in June for chapbooks to add to our 2016 list. You can send work to us via Submittable. (Note that we are on Belgian time, which means our June 1 may begin before yours, and our June 30 may end before yours.)
For our 2015 reading period, there will be no reading fee. If you would like to make a gesture of support for the press, please take a look at the books in our shop and purchase one. (You can use the code IHEARTMIEL2015 for 30% off from June 1 – 30, Belgian time.) All work will be given consideration regardless of purchase.
Our 2016 list already contains three art chapbooks, two poetry chapbooks, and two nonfiction chapbooks. We are looking to add four more chapbooks: two of poetry (of any kind), two of prose (fiction, nonfiction, hybrid, cross-discipline, multigenre). Reading the work we have already published is the best way to see whether your work would be a good fit for MIEL. There are sample texts in each book page in the shop, as well as many sample poems on our website.
