Submission Guidelines

Put together your best 7500-12500 words (or 20-40 double-spaced pages) of fiction or non-fiction and send it to passengersidebooks [at]

Simultaneous submissions are both allowed and encouraged. Just let me know if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

Types of Books I'm Always Looking For

Story cycles. (Or, a novella in stories, if you want to call it that.)

Stylistically sharp short fiction. (Amy Hempel, Gary Lutz, Barry Hannah, and Rick Bass all fit this bill for me.)

Rock & roll memoirs / personal essays about life-altering music or musical experiences.

Black & white graphic novels. Due to the short nature of chapbooks, I'm willing to serialize a longer work, if necessary.

Anything having to do with professional wrestling. Seriously.

I'm not interested in fantasy or hard-sci-fi.

I'm especially not interested in anything with a hateful or political agenda unless it's self-hatred and/or inner-politics. Then we're cool.

If you're a poet: don't call me, I'll call you.
