C&R Press is open for full-length manuscripts in all categories for our 2019-20 catalog. Novels, poetry, short story collections, creative non-fiction, memoir, experimental and hybrid work. 

C&R Press submissions are open for our Summer Tide Pool and New York reading series. 

C&R Press is engaging our community more than ever, by seeking diverse and submerged voices, hosting readings and events at festivals from the Brooklyn Book Festival and the Miami Book Festival, to Sewanee and the Texas Book Festival, and off-site gatherings at AWP. (Next Spontaneous Literary Mixer is Sepetember 15,18 in NYC at Concrete&Water). 

C&R has never held a formal reading period. We accept work that will hold people’s attention for years to come. It’s true that not all submitted work can be taken for publication, but please know each contribution helps support our cause (we’re poets and writers, too!)—which is to celebrate and promote literature. The funds created by the reading period go toward one goal: the creation of author-friendly contract models and opportunities to market and promote essential literature.

We look forward to seeing your work!

*Please note that for work we've classified In Progress we do not allow edits or changes to the manuscript. 

*For full length fiction, memoir, essays and other manuscripts over 100 pages we can take 6-18 months to respond, in some cases faster and in some longer. Our policy is to give manuscripts that have strong, though not unanimous, support multiple chances to be selected across several reading periods. We welcome inquiries and ask for patience. We are giving each work the read through and consideration it deserves.

C&R Press is open for submissions of full length manuscripts in every category for our 2019-20 catalog. Novels, poetry, short story collections, creative non-fiction, memoir, essay, experimental and hybrid work. 


C&R publishes 12-16 books across all genres each year. 


For Novels and memoirs, please include a synopsis.

In Spring 2019 C&R Press will publish 1-3 chapbooks of poetry, short stories or other types of literary or mixed work. Summer Tide Pool Chapbooks of poetry are between 20-40 pages and chapbooks of fiction, creative nonfiction, essays and mixed genre are between 25-60 pages not including front matter. Manuscript authors selected for publication receive ten copies of the book, $100 dollars and a reading in New York City. Entries are open from the Summer Solstice (June 21) to the Autumnal Equinox (Sept 22). 

We are looking for work that is developed, polished, and has a strong singular voice. We encourage emerging and established authors in the full-length  manuscript process to submit their best work.
