________________________________

About the submission + purchase option:

We are leery of reading fees ourselves, so we don't ask for them. We will not require you to purchase a chapbook with your submission--after all, there are absolutely legitimate reasons not to buy a book from us: you already own all/most/some of our titles, you're in-between lives and don't have a mailing address at the moment, you just don't have $7 right now, or you resent even the slightest nudge toward a reading fee. If you prefer not to purchase a Toad Press title at this time, please click on the "Submit to Toad Press...(free submission)" category to upload your submission. We won't read your submission any differently than if you had purchased one of our titles along with sending us your own work. Really.

However, there are also excellent reasons to purchase a chapbook at the same time you submit your work to us: you want to see the types of books we make to make sure we're the right press for you & your work, you want to help support our authors and translators by actually reading what they've written (and maybe sharing it with a friend), you want to help our tiny press stay viable, you want to buy a chapbook for a friend, etc., etc. We applaud you for making this choice.

  • When you make your submission + purchase, you can select one of our previously published titles from the list below.
The Night's Belly (Sara Tuss Efrik, trans. Paul Cunningham)

Tail of the Whale (Alice Sant'Anna, trans. Tiffany Higgins)

Mainland (stinne storm, trans. stinne storm)

  • Once you pay the fee, you'll be prompted to upload your manuscript for submission, select a chapbook, and enter a mailing address.
