Get Fresh Books does not charge submission fees or run contests. We publish talented authors whose work we respect and admire, and we are interested in publishing your work.

Our chief concern is to provide opportunities for underrepresented voices in publishing, we reject all the "isms" and phobias suppressing our voices. No to racism, sexism, ageism, gender identity discrimination, homophobia, Islamophobia, and economic disenfranchisement.

Get Fresh Books wants manuscripts from People of Color, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, people who are blind or deaf, and people living with mental illnesses.

In a cover letter, please send a description of your manuscript that explains its themes and subject matter, and what you hope the book will express as a work of art. Be sure to provide an email address and phone number.

Include twenty poems from your manuscript, a short bio, and a listing of all publications.
