SUBMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED.
We publish small-run chapbooks from BIPOC writers.
We are accepting submissions for:
An unpublished chapbook manuscript (20 - 40 pages of poetry). Individually published poems are fine as long as the manuscript as a whole is unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please notify us right away if your chapbook manuscript as a whole is accepted elsewhere.
From writers who:
Have not yet formally published a chapbook before (self-publishing is fine), and have less than 20 pages of published work, and who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a person of colour.
What happens if you are accepted?
Moon Jelly House will offer 20 free author copies of your chapbook and a royalty on all orders. Contracts are negotiable, however, and we will tailor arrangements to meet the needs of our writers.
Email your submissions and bio to: with the format NAME and SUBMISSION in the subject line. Please title your manuscript.
