We’re halfway there, friends, in our reading period for poetry books and short story collections. Many thanks to those of you who have already sent us your manuscripts. If you’re still cracking, no worries — you have another full month (until June 30, 2013) to get those poetry books and short story collections together to submit to Augury.

A few words about what we’re looking for: We gravitate toward pieces that are expertly written and keep us intrigued. We are not particular when it comes to content, as we have fallen in love with work from many different traditions and on many different topics, as well as work that defies tradition and “topics.”

We do, however, want to fall in love with it, so it should justify that kind of devotion. If you have fallen in love with it, we consider that a great place to start.

Now you know. Tell your friends, loved ones and acquaintances. We’ll be seeing you all within the next month!

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in submitting to Augury Books. Our reading period will last between May 1, 2013 & June 30, 2013, and we have something special for you! For the first time, we are opening submissions in two categories: poetry manuscripts and short story collections.

Please read our guidelines for each category carefully, as manuscripts that do not adhere may not be considered. To submit your manuscript, click on the link at the bottom of the page. Use the same link for both categories; you will be prompted to choose your category on the next page.

Do not forget to upload your file on the submission form before completing the process! To return to this information anytime before June 30, bookmark our Submissions Page.
