Editorial Focus: 

Deerbrook Editions strives to advocate for authors and artists by publishing their work in well designed trade books and promoting it through marketing and publicity. We also aim to connect authors with a wider audience through readings, workshops, and publications, and demonstrate the power of literature while encouraging reading and thereby advancing literacy. See our Website for more information.

Tips From the Editor: 

These are suggestions to help facilitate the submission process. The better prepared any manuscript is, the easier it is to read. Authors can send hard copy manuscripts printed on regular 8.5 x 11 in. paper. We recommend an organized collection of poems or prose (short stories or novella) approximately 40 to 70 pages for an average collection of poems. Most of our books are under 100 pages including front and back matter. The smallest book that can be perfect bound trade paper is a minimum of 40 pages. See our Website for further information.
