Grey Borders Books Reading period: April 2018-October 2018

Grey Borders is interested in works that confront and challenge contemporary social norms. Current and ongoing themes reflect mental illness, world race relations, sex and sexuality, social justice work and uncommon perspectives. We are interested in reading works of poetry, fiction (all genres) and non-fiction. There are no length restrictions; however, we are looking for full manuscripts for trade publication as well as smaller works for chapbook publication.

Feel free to contact us with questions before submission.

Although we have a "reading period" we do accept submissions throughout the year. If you are submitting outside of our reading period, please contact us prior to submitting.

We also accept submissions (up to 15 pages fiction/non-fiction/poetry, 5 pieces black/white artwork) for Grey Borders Magazine, which can be found HERE. Submissions for Grey Borders Magazine are open year round.
