Naissance chapbooks by chapbookpublisher.com

We are interested in the chapbook as a compositional unit. Just as some ideas are sonnet shaped, some ideas are novel shaped, and some ideas are blog shaped, we believe that some ideas are chapbook shaped, and we endeavor to publish the best of those that come our way.

New Rivers Press is interested in literary work of every character, but especially in diverse work that's aesthetically challenging and has a social conscience.

Our Electronic Book Series (July 1 – Sept. 1) seeks manuscripts in popular fiction genres. During open submissions (May), we are interested in reading the best work from writers in all stages of their careers.
