About

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Flagstaff, Arizona. We publish daring, energetic books that use separate parts to construct a whole: poetry, short stories, comics poetry, hybrids, photo stories, flash memoir, and more. We treasure creativity, and so we may not know we love something until we see it. Art, like the jackalope, cannot be constrained by classification or form. At Tolsun, the importance of aesthetic and design is paramount: A Tolsun Book will look and feel beautiful on your bookshelf, coffee table, or nightstand. Go ahead, judge our books by their covers! We believe in the cosmic power of strong relationships with authors, artists, partners, and the community. Our authors and staff have become our family. The Tolsun Family is an incredible group of humans that support each other in ways we could never have believed when we first made the decision to start a press. Tolsun Publishing proudly practices stewardship in the literary community by publishing debut and experienced authors with diverse backgrounds, licensing artwork from working artists and designers, tabling at bookfairs, presenting at literary conferences, and hosting readings. Our plans for the future include creating a dedicated audio department to record each of our books so that they are more accessible to our readers, offering editing, design, and formatting services on a sliding payment scale, developing educational outreach in schools and through public workshops and internships, and to continue publishing rad books by amazing humans.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
