About

Bone & Ink Press is a small press based in southeastern Wisconsin, founded in 2017 by Jessie Lynn McMains. We are committed to publishing the works of marginalized writers. We are committed to publishing writing that startles like a shout in the street. And what do we mean by we are committed to publishing the works of marginalized writers? We mean that we are looking for thrilling feats of (literary) derring-do by LGBTQ+ writers, writers of color, women, disabled writers, neurodivergent writers, immigrant writers/people writing in English as a second language, etc. We're not making any rules like "we'll never publish anything by a straight white guy," but we will be focusing on publishing writers who are underrepresented in some way.

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
