Essay Press is now reading for its open book contest, to be judged by Essay author Carla Harryman. We particularly welcome book-length manuscripts that extend or challenge the formal range of nonfiction—including, but not limited to, lyric essays and prose poems/poetics; experimental biography and autobiography; innovative approaches to journalism, experimental historiography, criticism, scholarship and philosophy. Collaborative manuscripts, digital and hybridized text/art manuscripts all are encouraged. Each completed submission will be considered with care by multiple readers, and all manuscripts will be considered for additional publishing possibilities. All submissions due by May 1, 2016 at midnight PST.
