Anaphora - Call for Books and Articles

full name / name of organization: 
Anaphora Literary Press

Anaphora Literary Press,, is looking for single-author critical books (edited dissertation and seasoned projects), and multi-author collections. We currently run only one journal, the Pennsylvania Literary Journal, so if you are interested in editing and running a journal (you should be an established scholar), we are interested in hearing from you. We are also actively seeking creative single-author books: novels, short story and poetry collections (as well as in other ideas). Writers who are academics and can think of local book stores, or colleges where they might schedule readings, are the best fit for Anaphora. We are a general press, that accepts projects in most critical and creative fields.

If you are in the "Film Studies" field, we are actively looking for critical essays on film studies and in the related topics and fields. The deadline for this issue is February 28, 2011.

The Anaphora Literary Press was started as an academic press with the publication of the Pennsylvania Literary Journal (PLJ) in 2009. The fourth issue of PLJ is now on sale through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, EBSCO Academic Complete, and other channels.

In the Winter of 2010, Anaphora began accepting book-length single-author submissions. Our calls are listed in the Writer's Market, Duotrope and most other major lists. The Press's first novel was Evidence and Judgment by Lynn Clarke, a Harvard J.D., currently practicing in West Virginia. Anaphora's first short story collection, Adventures in Long Island and Abroad, by Bruce D. Johnson will go on sale February, 2011. Several other fiction and non-fiction projects are under review or production. We are actively seeking single and multiple-author books in fiction (poetry, novels, and short story collections) and non-fiction (academic, legal, business, journals, edited dissertations, biographies, and memoires). There are no deadlines for book-length projects - send it when it is ready for publication (as opposed to editing). Email submissions to Profits are split 50/50% with single-author writers. There are no costs to have a book produced by Anaphora.
