There are presently no open calls for submissions.
- Include a cover letter of no more than one page briefly describing the work and the author’s background and contact information.
- Please include a table of contents.
- Simultaneous submissions are okay. Please state so in the cover letter, and please
inform us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
- Please allow a minimum of three months for reply.
- Selected manuscripts receive a contract, $500, publication, and author copies.
- To do our small part in trying to address the publishing industry's historical underrepresentation of minoritized writers, Veliz Books is offering the option of free submission for authors who identify as such.
- Reading fee for all other submissions is $25. With the payment of our $25-reading fee you will receive a book from our catalog. Please make sure to include in your cover letter the title of the book you would like us to send.
- Unfortunately we are currently unable to send books outside of the U.S. for this promotion. For international submissions there is an alternate lower fee of $20. This fee is also available for our U.S. submissions that do not wish to receive a book.
