Submissions :: Essay Press

griffin Essay Press is a new imprint dedicated to publishing innovative, explorative, and culturally relevant essays in book form. Initial title releases include: Griffin by Albert Goldbarth; I, Afterlife: An Essay in Mourning Time by Kristin Prevallet; The Body: An Essay by Jenny Boully. Forthcoming titles include Letters from Abu Ghraib by Joshua Casteel and Adorno’s Noise by Carla Harryman

We are currently accepting submissions of essays ranging from roughly 40 to 80 pages. We will be reading from June to September. We are interested in publishing single essays that are too long to be easily published in journals or magazines, but too short to be considered book-length by most publishers. We are looking for essays that have something to say – essays that both demand and deserve to stand alone. We particularly welcome work that extends or challenges the formal protocols of the nonfiction essay–including, but not limited to, lyric essays or prose poems, experimental biography and autobiography, innovative approaches to journalism, and experimental historiography.”
