General Submissions

Anklebiters operates as a self-publishing press, offering the support of being published by a press and the freedom of publishing your own book.

We charge for materials at cost and provide affordable publishing services. You sell your book at whatever price you want, however you want, with our help available. Selling your own book is more difficult, but more rewarding and more profitable for you.

The cost of materials and labor varies depending on size, run, b&w vs. color, type of paper, and how much work we put in.

Work that is especially interesting to us, unique, intellectually challenging, subversive, or decolonizing gets a more curated approach and becomes part of our canon.

We also publish work that falls outside our range of taste at a more affordable rate than local or online print shops. We will not, however, include this work in our canon, and no opinion on the content will be provided.

To inquire about publishing a full-length publication, such as a poetry, short story, visual art, photography, or hybrid collection, novel, novella, chapbook, magazine, or zine, contact us.
