We love to see work by established and previously unpublished writers. Depending on what you plan to submit, the guidelines are slightly different. If you have more than one category of work to submit, please do so in their respective separate categories.

We look forward to reading your work!

Beneath the Veil of Night is an anthology about dreams - literally. But not just dreams as they are... no. This anthology gathers art, poetry, short stories, and essays inspired by the dreams of the author. If your subconscious is overactively creative, this is the place for you!

Have an idea for an anthology theme? Say so in your submission and we will take the theme into consideration for one of our books!

This is a brand new project, so there aren't a whole lot of rules at this point. You may submit multiple pieces under one fee and there is no word count limit right now. Go crazy!

The only rule: works for this volume must be about or involve imaginary creatures. Genre can be anything. Whether you dream about extraterrestrials, living wormholes, or tiny, friendly dragons, this is the place for your creative works about creatures!

Deadline: None. Indefinite until I have enough submissions to publish a book.

If your manuscript isn't finished, please do not submit it here. Inquire about our editing and author consultation, developmental editing, & critique services first. If you just want some simple feedback, we will try to give it if time permits.

If you have questions or would like to submit a query letter, please feel free to fill out the contact form on the Contact Us page of www.brokenpublications.com.

If your manuscript is ready for publication and you'd like to collaborate with us, read on!

We do not accept snail mail submissions. It would require re-typing everything onto the computer, and there's just no time for that! Electronic submissions only.

Our fiction publications are severely lacking as of yet; however, we love a lot of different types of fiction! From YA to Romance, Horror to Thriller, Sci Fi to Fantasy -- if it's good, we'll enjoy it.

If you have a fiction manuscript to submit, please adhere to traditional formatting: double-spaced with your contact information at the top of the first page, typed in a neat, legible 12pt font. It should be submitted as a Word document - .doc or .docx. If you don't have Word, you can download a fully compatible software for free called Kingsoft Writer.

Thank you for taking such an active interest in working with Broken Publications! We look forward to reading your work.

Poetry is such a diverse artform that I can't really give specifics as to what we're looking for, exactly. When reviewing poetry submissions and prose work, it's important for a reader to keep an open mind; I could go into all of the various types and classifications of poetry, but in my opinion, that takes away from the beauty and magic of the work itself.

So, let's just say that there should be a minimum of about 60 poems in a collection of poetry. If you're a poet as well as an artist, there's a good chance that color plays a vital role in your work - this means the final product will have to cost more, but the beauty of it should make readers feel that it was well worth it to spend the money they did.

Poetry flows, moves you, and expresses what many people may not be able to express in a fluid and passionate way. Poetry is a moment caught in time and immortalized or an experience retold with intrigue and fascination. Poetry is a lot of things.

Like music, everyone is different in their tastes for poetry. Though poetry readership is often not very widespread, there is definitely a market for it if the work is good.

We're looking for work that moves us in a number of different ways.

That being said, here are the technicalities of our submissions requirements:

  • Please submit your work the way you want it to appear in print (line spacing, formatting, etc.). If you particularly enjoy a specific font for your work, include it as a suggestion.
  • Please submit a minimum of 60 poems for a collection.
  • If artwork is to be included, submit it in a separate file or email it to us upon acceptance; image resolution MUST be at 300dpi or higher to be printed. To make the process of adding the art easier, make notes within your manuscript as placeholders for your art.

We adore poetry of many styles and nuances; rhyming or freeform, prose, and on topics of a great range. We look forward to reading your work!

If you have a book that you feel will help people learn something, better their lives, or help them to achieve some form of improvement, then we want to see it!

We especially like books about business, marketing, self-improvement, emotional healing, and practical advice on topics like writing a novel or editing your own work. Manuscript submissions do not need to be limited to these topics.

Technical requirements:

  • Word document (.doc or .docx)
  • Double-spaced
  • Legible 12pt font (Arial, Times New Roman, etc.).
  • Include contact information at the top of the first page
  • Submit images separately at 300dpi quality or higher

We look forward to seeing your work!

Short story collections, essay collections, and other collected works by the same author should be submitted here. Any and all genres will be considered.

The technical requirements are:

  • Manuscript should be double-spaced
  • Manuscript should be at least 120 pages
  • Legible 12pt font (Arial, Times New Roman, etc.)
  • Contact information included on first page

If you're interested in submitting a novella, please submit it under the fiction category.

We look forward to reading your work!
