PM Press: Now Accepting Manuscript Queries

Updated June 25th 2022: They are currently closed to submissions.  Please do not query or submit.

PM Press is an independent, radical publisher of books and media. It was founded in 2007 by AK Press founder Ramsey Kanaan and several other members of AK Press. The goal of PM Press is to amplify the voices of radical authors, artists, and activists, and they publish a wide range of material, from speculative fiction anthologies, to coloring books to nonfiction work on mutual aid and unschooling.

You can see books they’ve recently published here. Many of the authors they’ve published are famous and well regarded, or experts in a niche field.

At the very top of their submission guidelines they warn that they are scheduled pretty tightly for the next two years, but they are still open to submissions. As they put it: “We are accepting submissions, though to be honest, we’re pretty much booked for two years. We will, however, take a look at what you send us and get back to you. There’s always a chance, but just so you know, it’s pretty slim.”

They try to respond to all submissions within two months. They accept submissions via email and the post, but vastly prefer emailed submissions.

Their submission guidelines are comprehensive and detail oriented. You can learn more about them here. Please follow them carefully.
