Radial Books is a small press publisher of contemporary poetry and fiction.

Please send your complete manuscript of poetry or literary fiction, along with a brief overview of the work. 

We read year-round and give each work careful consideration. Please allow up to six months for a response. If you have not heard back at the six month mark, feel free to send us an email. Given the number of submissions that we receive, we are not always able to respond with a personal message. This is by no means a judgement on your work, only that it does not suit us at this time.

Thank you for considering Radial Books for your manuscript.
