Port Yonder Press 5

Do not submit here! This project is on indefinite hiatus from submissions.


The ideal submission to Port Yonder Press will be a piece of fiction, poetry or nonfiction which addresses the human condition honestly, with tact and tenderness, is beautifully worded, tight and strong in both literary merit and human understanding, and will make readers and judges take notice. It's a piece that will drive the reader forward in plot and pathos, in character-development and beauty of language.

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 novel/collection 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 or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
