Hoot 'n' Waddle
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
**Hi, folks. Thank you for your interest in submitting your work to Hoot n Waddle. Unfortunately, we have had to suspend acceptance of further submissions while we catch up on the ones we've already received, and re-tool our publication model in the wake of COVID-19. If you have already submitted, your work will be considered and responded to--we appreciate your patience.
Hoot n Waddle is looking for book-length collections of poetry, literary fiction (short stories, micro-fiction, and novellas), and literary nonfiction.
What we're not looking for: genre or fan fiction, epic novels, self-help, cookbooks, personal or family histories, how-to—you know what, if you're not sure, make an inquiry (email@example.com).
If you're not sure whether or not your manuscript is a good fit for our press, we suggest reading one of our existing publications, which are available from https://squareup.com/store/hootnwaddle
There is a $20 reading fee per manuscript (for mail submissions, we will accept money orders or cashier's checks only). Alternatively, you can purchase one of our books, and we will wave the submissions fee (proof of purchase is required for this option).
Submissions are open year round—until we get overwhelmed, at which point we'll shut 'em down faster than something that gets shut down really, really fast.
Please allow 6-12 months for response for all categories.
