Call for Submissions

Paying call for Submission – Barrelhouse is looking for their next poetry book

From the Barrelhouse Submission page: “Selected manuscripts will be published by Barrelhouse Books in an initial run of 1,000 copies. Authors will receive $500 at the time of publication and royalties later on.”

Manuscripts can include previously published individual poems, but the collection itself needs to be unpublished, including self-publishing.

Deadline: November 30, 2014.


They are looking for poetry books of at least 48 pages or more. Make sure to read all the guidelines carefully. This market is not listed as highly competitive on Duotrope and has a killer review on The Review Review.

  1. I am laughing because I am soooo tempted to do this. I have 4 other manuscripts just begging to find a home. But Numinous has taken so much of my time and attention that my family rarely sees me and I look more like Nick Nolte’s mug shot on the average day. I promised my husband I would take a little break in-between these projects–stick to lit mags for a while while Numinous simmers. Uggghhh…it is so tempting though! This sounds like a good one! Are you going to submit?

  2. Nov. 30 is a little too tight for me. I’ve just got too many other things in the works. I could send something I’ve already sent out… but I think it could use some tweaking, so I’ll probably wait. Yes, family, art, work, well yeah, life… definitely a balancing act!
