  • Multiple submissions are welcome but each must be submitted separately, with separate payments.
  • Current or former students of editor Kate Angus cannot submit.
  • Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please withdraw your manuscript immediately if it is accepted elsewhere.
  • Make sure your manuscript contains your Name and Email Address, and that pages are numbered.
  • Make sure your manuscript contains your cover letter, or create one within Submittable.
  • Acceptable formats for uploaded manuscripts are PDF, DOC, and DOCX.
  • With the $10 reading fee you receive an ebook/pdf of your choosing, any book of poetry or prose from the Augury Books or Brooklyn Arts Press catalogues. When you submit, you must state the Title and Author of the book you wish to receive, and if you prefer an ebook or a pdf. This book purchase helps authors familiarize themselves with our press and supports our internal manuscript readers.
