Anvil Press publishes literary fiction, nonfiction, poetry & drama

Anvil Press is a small literary publisher that puts out eight to ten titles per year. It began in 1988 with publishing subTERRAIN magazine and evolved into publishing books. They’re not interested in genre novels.

For fiction and nonfiction, provide a brief, one-page synopsis of the entire manuscript (no need to break it down chapter by chapter) plus 20 – 20 pages of the manuscript (enough to give the reader a good sense of the style and content).

For poetry, submit 8 – 12 poems (depending on length)

For drama, unless it's excessively long, forward your entire manuscript.

Submissions by mail only. See full submission guidelines here.

Brian Henry will lead a “Writing for Children and for Young Adults” workshop in Newmarket on Saturday, September 22 (see here), and he'll lead a "How to Get Published" workshop on Saturday, October 13, in Toronto with Monica Pacheco of The Anne McDermid literary agency (see here). But the best step you can take toward getting published is to take one of Brian’s weekly courses (see here).

See Brian's full schedule here, including writing workshops and creative writing courses in Kingston, Peterborough, Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Georgetown, Milton, Oakville, Burlington, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Dundas, Kitchener, Guelph, London, Woodstock, Orangeville, Newmarket, Barrie, Gravenhurst, Sudbury, Muskoka, Peel, Halton, the GTA, Ontario and beyond.
