Carolina Wren Press


to continue, i want to highlight CAROLINA WREN PRESS. i only own one of their books, Evie Shockley’s a half-red sea, which is an amazing book.

look at their submission guidelines:

We read unsolicited mss. of fiction and nonfiction September 1st to December 1st yearly and children’s lit and poetry from February 1st to June 1st.

Our next poetry contest – for a full-length collection by an emerging author – will take entries in the fall, with a submission deadline of 12/1/08 and fee of $20. This contest is for writers who haven’t had more than one full-length book published. Final Judge tba. Full guidelines available in July 2008. Click here for 2007 contest results.

Our next Doris Bakwin Award for Writing by a Woman is taking submissions from now until 12/1/07. The final judge will be Jeanne Leiby. Results anticipated in September 2008. Full guidelines now available

not only do they have an OPEN reading period, but they ALSO have a contest AND an exclusive contest. this, to me, is a great model.
