V Press LC is now accepting submissions year round. In addition to the details below, please read our Book Submissions page to see what we like, what we don't, rules and rights, and more:  http://www.vpresslc.com/submissions/ 

 

NO Contests Currently Due to Coronavirus -- however, WE ARE ACCEPTING book entries via our General Book Submission. 

To help authors during this time we've lowered our reading fee to $25.  


General Book Submission(s)

  • Submit a query letter, a synopsis, and the first three chapters of your manuscript for consideration, except for poetry-poets submit the full manuscript. If we are interested we will offer you a  competitive book contract. V Press LC accepts any of these genres: Novel, NF, Flash, Short Stories, Essays, Poetry, or Hybrid Manuscripts ($25 reading fee). 


Reading fees help to offset publishing costs. 

V Press LC looks forward to reading your pieces. Learn more about V Press LC here: https://www.vpresslc.com/about/

What you get

V Press LC invites submissions from anyone, anywhere in the world. Please submit a query letter, synopsis, and the first three chapters of your book for consideration. If we are interested we will offer you a competitve book contract. However, we cannot offer any monetary prize. 

What we like 

V Press LC loves to read fresh and original works. We lean more towards writing that empowers, educates, inspires, encourages or moves us in some way--the best works are those that get into the bones and the reader carries them around for a while. But know that there are some works we will publish simply for the enjoyment of reading them. Submit and surprise us. We love to be surprised. 

What we don’t want 

V Press LC does not want to see any works involving child abuse, graphic sexual deviations, horror, or anything that is just plainly too graphic for general adult audiences. If it disturbs the general reader then it’s not for us. The following are more works that we are not interested in seeing/reading: works targeted for children, self-help, religion and spirituality, erotica, textbooks, or technical/professional works. 

Rights & Rules 

Multiple submissions are allowed and encouraged, but each submission must be accompanied with a separate reading fee. 

Simultaneous submissions are also welcome and encouraged. Kindly let us know if your submission has been accepted elsewhere.
