Submission Guidelines

Submissions are now closed.


Based in Queens, NY, Ellipsis Press is a publisher of avant-garde fiction. We’re interested in
innovative writers who have studied the traditional elements of the novel and skilfully experimented
with these to emotionally moving and extraordinary ends. We like novels that look normal but aren’t
(more than those that look weird but are actually quite normal), those that are successful at bypassing
or evolving the necessary but often tired elements of character and/or plot, and those that respond
in some way to the history of the novel as a genre and form.

Our last open reading period was from February 15 to March 31, 2014.
