Resources for Writers
Submissions Call: Palooka Press
Submissions deadline: 15th May 2019
Palooka is an international nonprofit literary magazine of unique fiction, poetry, nonfiction, artwork, photography, graphic narratives, and comic strips. The press was founded to offer writers a home for shorter manuscripts.
Palooka take great pride in reading every word and giving each manuscript its due attention. We consider manuscripts of all styles and genres and aren’t looking for a particular aesthetic. We’re willing to give anything a fair chance. Please send your best fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama, graphic narrative, or hybrid work. Manuscripts should be roughly 30-50 pages, but we’re flexible. The $10 entry fee comes with an electronic issue of Palooka.

Publication by Palooka Press (a perfect-bound book with a glossy or matte color cover)
