Essay Press

We publish innovative literary nonfiction. We are most interested in single essays that are too long to be easily published in journals or magazines, but too short to be considered book-length by most publishers.

Essay Press

Essay Press is now reading for its first open-book contest, to be judged by Essay author Kristin Prevallet. We particularly welcome book-length manuscripts that extend or challenge the formal range of nonfiction—including, but not limited to, lyric essays and prose poems/poetics; experimental biography and autobiography; innovative approaches to journalism, experimental historiography, criticism, scholarship and philosophy. Simultaneous submissions, multiple submissions, collaborative manuscripts, digital and hybridized text/art manuscripts all are encouraged.
