Unsolicited Press

Our motto" No bullshit, just books. And that's true. We are selective and looking for high quality, accessible fiction, excluding the fantasy genre. Can be genre based, so long as it is not campy. Short story collections and novellas are welcome.

We are constantly looking for poetry collections and chapbooks. We published chapbooks 25-30 pages.

We want creative nonfiction in the form of book-length journalism, memoirs and experimental forms.

Upper Hand Press

We want authors compelled to write by the significance of their own experience and questions. Our writers have things they can't keep quiet about. We believe that significant writers work very hard whatever their circumstances and whatever their educations. Upper Hand is not prejudiced in favor of authors with credentials in writing. We are eclectic and personal in approach. We do not automatically exclude topics and voices that we haven't encountered before.
