DevilHouse is an imprint of AngelHousePress seeking to publish transgressive literary work in the form of short story collections, novellas, novel excerpts, flash fiction, one-act plays and creative nonfiction in limited edition chapbooks. The editor of DevilHouse is Amanda Earl, a polyamorous poetesse, vispoet, fiction-eer and editrix who has been publishing her work since 2001 and editing poetry and prose since 2003/2004.
UPDATE: May, 2018: We are taking a hiatus from publishing chapbooks and focusing on AngelHousePress for now.
Update: December, 2017: Note that I've received a lot of manuscripts by men, so for now, i'm going to ask that only women and genderqueer writers send me work.
Word count: Between 5, 000 to 15,000 words. Please send submissions as .doc, docx, rtf or pdf files to email@example.com along with a current bio and photo & a link to your website, blog & social media info.
Authors will receive ten copies as payment, and will have the option to buy more copies at a reduced price if they live in North America. The chapbooks will be available for sale on line via Paypal and at book fairs. We are looking for lively, intelligent in-the-moment prose that kicks against the pricks. No memoirs of World War II or stories of grandmama's tea parties please. Genre fiction is not ruled out.
We ask that authors refrain from republishing the work for a period of six months following publication or until the chapbooks are sold out, whichever comes first. We also request that DevilHousePress be credited if the work is republished.
While the work can be previously published, we prefer that it be out of print or hard to obtain or not currently posted on line.
For queries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: January 11, 2018
Announcing a free close reading service for new women and gender queer prose writers.
