A small and occasional press



Our newly launched Pamphlet collection is now open for submissions. Please get in touch through our contact page with a summary of the project (max. 500 words), and a short BIO. We are happy to accept fiction, poetry, non-fiction, essays, ekphrasis... any form that covers our three remits, translation, poetry, nature. 

At this point, we have limited the word count to c. 5,000 words. However, if your project is likely to be longer, do get in touch with an approximate idea of length, and we promise to have a look at it.

This is an open submission, without deadline at present. We will endeavour to reply to everyone who gets in touch. 

The editors, Marian and James Womack, are looking for new voices, experimental and hybrid fiction and non-fiction, previously untranslated authors, and, in general, writing from the margins that deserves to be brought to the centre of the conversation. We would like in particular to encourage authors and translators who do not see themselves represented, or represented enough, in this form at present. Please do get in touch.
