Two Oregon-based publishers are open to unagented submissions. Forest Avenue Press is looking for literary fiction, while Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing welcomes nonfiction, fiction, and poetry.
Forest Avenue Press: March 1 Deadline
This publisher is interested in literary fiction, especially realistic contemporary novels. The submission call is only for writers who reside in the United States. Forest Avenue Press plans to choose three manuscripts from this submission call. The deadline is March 1, 2016, so submit now!
This is a traditional press that offers advances and international distribution, but it also offers a self-publishing option for the more entrepreneurial authors. Wyatt-MacKenzie’s books include memoirs, parenting books, self-help books, poetry, and fiction.
Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing’s Imprints Program offers a self-publishing model that allows authors to create their own brands. The company describes the program as “a step above self-publishing” because you will have your own imprint under the Wyatt-MacKenzie umbrella.
