Jaded Ibis Press: Now Accepting Manuscript Submissions

Jaded Ibis press allows international submissions from women, writers of color, writers with disabilities, queer writers, as well as other marginalized and disenfranchised writers. They currently publish prose, both in terms of fiction and non-fiction. They want work to be well written and also contain ideas that contribute to the progress of social justice. This is very much a niche focus.

Jaded Ibis has been around for over a decade, but under new ownership since 2016. The owner/editor before that gave an interview with Entropy while the press was in the process of going under.

Going with a niche press like this one has risks but also rewards. The previous press had a lot of community support and their back list is still available under the new ownership.

Their publishing interests are also clear, both in terms of their guidelines and also based on what they’ve previously published. You can view their catalog here. They have published five books so far under the new ownership.

The covers are fine but not particularly inspiring. The website is easy to use.

They offer author royalties of 40% net profit on book sales.
