Biblioasis: Accepting Manuscript Submissions

Biblioasis is a literary press based in Windsor, Ontario. They publish poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. They publish short story collections and translated works. The books they publish have beautiful covers. Within Canada they have good distribution.

Unlike most Canadian presses they accept international submissions, however they use the term “select”. If you are submitting internationally I would be very careful before submitting to make sure that you meet their needs. You can do that by reviewing their catalog carefully and preferably ordering a book.

They publish between 16 and 20 works each year, but 8 to 10 of those titles are pre-selected by their board. They receive hundreds of submissions every year for those remaining slots.

At this time it is unlikely that any fiction they accept will be published till 2021, so please take that into consideration.

They accept submissions online and via post. They ask that you submit the entire manuscript. You can read their submission guidelines here.

Emily Harstone is the pen name of an author whose work has been published internationally by a number of respected journals. She is a professional submissions adviser and spends much of her time researching manuscript publishers. You can follow her on Facebook.
