Submissions

Cayuga Lake Books welcomes all writers of quality poetry, prose, and work that may not fit traditional categories.

We consider previously unpublished writing and work that has been previously published in magazines, newspapers, and journals.

Submission Guidelines

Poetry

  • If you would like to submit a book of poetry, please first send 5-10 poems as an attachment to a cover letter about yourself. We’ll do our best to get back to you about them within a month.
  • Please send all poetry submissions, or inquiries about submitting poetry to Peter Fortunato (poetfortunato@gmail.com).

Prose

  • If you’d like to submit prose––fiction or non-fiction––please first send about 20 pages as an attachment to your letter. We’ll do our best to get back to you about them within a month.
  • Please send all prose submissions, or inquiries about submitting prose, to Edward Hower (edwardhower@gmail.com) and Stacey Murphy (staceycmurphy@gmail.com).

Then, if we’re interested in considering the entire work, we’ll ask you to send it. Our turn-around time for considering books is generally 2-3 months.

Thank you for considering Cayuga Lake Books.
