Guidelines for Writers

We are currently in the process of updating our Submission Guidelines. We apologize for not being able to consider your submission at this time. Please check back in the coming weeks.


Anvil Press welcomes submissions from both emerging and established authors. We are happy to consider work from all corners of the identity spectrum, including works by underrepresented writers, including but not limited to writers who are Indigenous, of colour, immigrants, women, LGBTQ, low-income, and writers with disabilities. Submitters are welcome to state demographics such as race, age, gender, etc. in their cover letter if they so choose.

Anvil Press operates on the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples.
