How to Publish with Us

April 29, 2016 — We are now closed for submission and will remain closed until Memorial Day 2017.

Before sending your submission next summer (cover letter and manuscript attachment to, we ask that you support our press by taking any or all of the following actions:

Browse our books, and hell, buy one (or three) while you’re at it.

Sign up for Atticus Digest, our monthly e-newsletter.

*Like* our Facebook page.

Follow us on Twitter.

Become a friend of Atticus, in part for self-respect and in part because we’ll respect you more if we don’t think you’re just using us to advance your very important career.

We also encourage writers to submit short stories, poems, and literary essays for potential publication in Atticus Review, our weekly online journal, and/or on our website.

If you’re interested in having your work considered for publication in our kick-ass journal, go to the submissions page of Atticus Review on Submittable.

If you’re the gregarious, ambitious type and have an idea for a monthly or even sporadically written column, e-mail Dan Cafaro, the publisher, at The worst that can happen is he’ll never receive your submission because cyber gremlins ate it, and you’ll think he ignored you.

Fortunately for you, our staff, on the whole, doesn’t believe in public castration or humiliation, so you’re safe in that department.

In theory, anyway.
