Harpoon Books is now reading works of POETRY, FLASH FICTION, and ESSAYS to be published in 2020.


Please submit a completed manuscript, along with a brief cover letter containing a short bio, your contact information, and any publishing credits you want us to be aware of. We will not accept work that is out of print from another publisher. 


It is important that you familiarize yourself with the work we typically publish before submitting. We ask that all flash fiction manuscripts follow the same guidelines for word count as The Harpoon Review (1100 words or less).

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable. Please note that reading fees are non-refundable, and you must withdraw the manuscript immediately via Submittable if your work is accepted elsewhere.

​Feel free to direct any questions to harpoonbooks@gmail.com. We will be responding to each submission, but please allow time for us to do so.
