Submissions

If you are new to TRUTH SERUM PRESS …

please read this entire page. It is not long, and will prove invaluable if you proceed with submitting to us.

 

As of July 4th 2020, Truth Serum Press is no longer accepting submissions for single author books. It has been a momentous decision, but we feel good about it.

We may review our decision later and return to such publishing, but for the moment … if you are reading this … we won’t be publishing such works …

… that is, EXCEPT for books that are part of the Lindauer Poets series. If we have had discussions with you about being part of this series, those books will still go ahead.

If you have any questions, our email address is truthserumpress@live.com.au.

 

ANTHOLOGIES

We are currently open for submissions for the multi-author poetry anthology Glow.

Our sister press Pure Slush is currently open for submissions for the anthologies Wrong Way Go Back and 100 Lives.

For information about author copies for our multi-author anthologies, click here.

So what DO we publish?

ANTHOLOGIES

At times, we publish multi-author anthologies, for which we accept short stories, short essays, and / or poetry.

We are currently publishing a multi-author anthology series based around colour themes.

Scroll up this page, for submissions for Glow, the third in the colour series. And just to be really confusing, the colour series is for poetry only.

POETRY COLLECTIONS BY SINGLE AUTHORS

So, here’s the deal with (shorter) poetry collections … yeah, well we are starting up something new for 2021, shorter and smaller volumes. So not full-length by any means … but check out Lindauer Poets by clicking here.

NON-FICTION

If you wish to submit a non-fiction work, our sister press Everytime Press specialises in resource, history, how-to, reference, travel and other non-fiction books, so you may wish to look there by clicking here.

 

What else should I know about working with TRUTH SERUM PRESS?

We value our relationships with writers.

Many writers who submit to TRUTH SERUM PRESS and are published by us have already submitted to and been included in anthologies published by our other sister press, Pure Slush Books.

We like to know who we are dealing with. The writer-publisher/editor relationship is paramount to us.

We also hate reading simultaneous submissions, and refuse to … hence the statement above about our relationships with writers.
