Origami Submissions


Submit your work through Submittables (no fee)
Submissions are closed April and July/August
                       We prefer & encourage original work (see Warranty & Disclaimer below)
         but if previously published, provide details.
A microchap is a downloadable, single-page PDF.
Printing instructions are under the 'Who We Are' tab.
                               Our goal is to share poetry freely but this doesn't mean every submission is accepted for publication.
Format Considerations
Print one of the microchaps to understand what we're publishing:
Misc Details...
Review your work before submitting (we speak from experience) as we assume you're sending the final version.
Each microchap "page" allows 47 characters per line including spaces* 
For longer-lined pieces, three (3) reading pages are available with 107 characters per line.
Each page accomodates 25-27 lines.
Don't obsess about formatting - that's our job!
We reserve the right to accept or refuse any cover or title suggestion.
There is no payment - upon acceptance we'll post your book under your own Bio page.
You'll receive a business size envelope of a few of your Origami microchaps to read, share, or display on the tiniest of bookshelves.
The poet retains all rights after the first-time appearance on the website.
Wait 3-6 months between submissions (then hit send!)
