Rescue+Press Call for Submissions

I don’t post this sort of this too often, but since Hilary Plum is involved, this is definitely something aspiring writers should check out. Here’s the deal:

This winter Rescue Press will consider book-length prose submissions for our new Open Prose Series, which will publish one work a year of nonfiction, fiction, or sui generis prose.

This series will support singular prose works and the wider discussion of contemporary literary prose. We invite you to submit a manuscript to our open reading period between January 1 and January 31, 2013. There is no fee for submission nor are there restrictions on who may submit. All submissions will be reviewed by series editors Hilary Plum and Zach Savich, who will work with the editors of Rescue Press to select a manuscript for publication. We expect to make a decision by April 2013.

Please send submissions to rescueopenprose@gmail.com along with a biographical note and a brief statement about your work. Manuscripts should be sent as .pdf, .doc, .docx, or .rtf attachments.

THE SURRENDER

The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


LADY CHATTERLEY'S BROTHER

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


THE LATIN AMERICAN MIXTAPE

5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
