Yellow Flag Press publishes one collection of short fiction per year (beginning in 2017) under the banner of The Cypress & Pine Fiction Series.
Collections of original stories by both established and emerging authors writing in English will be considered.
* Collections should be comprised of original stories and/or novellas that have not been published as a complete collection (stories published individually in journals or chapbook are fine). No novels at this time.
* Manuscripts should be between 100 and 200 pages.
* Number each page of the manuscript. Author’s last name and the collection title should appear at the top of each page.
* Include a table of contents and a page of acknowledgements if any of the stories have been previously published.
* All submissions must be through Submittable. We do not accept hard copies.
* Include a short biographical statement in the cover letter field in Submittable. We do not need a synopsis of the collection.
* Simultaneous submissions are accepted and encouraged. Please notify us immediately if your manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere or if you wish to withdraw it for any reason.
* Please send only one manuscript a year.
The submission fee is $10. Each submission will receive a copy of the collection selected as the first in The Cypress & Pine Fiction Series. Copies will be mailed when the book is published in the spring of 2017. For this reason be sure that your mailing address is up to date with Submittable, and please notify us if you move before books are mailed.
