About

Caffeinated Press publishes works of literary merit by authors connected to West Michigan. Our catalog contains titles as diverse as textbooks, genre novels, poetry collections and a quarterly journal of arts and letters. We're a full-service, traditional indie publisher with a regional focus, which means we pay our authors instead of the other way around and give priority review to local writers. We very strongly encourage querying authors to read our editorial guidelines in their entirety before submitting.

Important: Query first.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For book publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
