Editorial Focus: 

Brooklyn Arts Press (BAP) is a literary press devoted to publishing chapbooks and full-length collections of poetry, novels, lyrical short fiction, and art monographs by emerging artists. We believe we serve our community best by publishing great works of varying aesthetics side by side, subverting the notion that writers & artists exist in vacuums, apart from the culture in which they reside and outside the realm & understanding of other camps & aesthetics.

Tips From the Editor: 

We receive 500 manuscripts a year, many of them of high quality, & publish maybe 1-2% of those submissions. Competition is steep, so send us your very best work.
