Calls for Submissions

See below for our current and upcoming submission calls. If you want to pitch us something that isn't covered, feel free.


Chapbook Submissions

Mason Jar Press started as an experiment between two friends who wanted to make some art. For this experiment, they recruited poet Matthew Falk and said, "Let us publish your chapbook. We'll hand make it, pay you some money. Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't. But it will be fun and it'll be weird."

Twelve books and seven staff members later, that's what we're still saying. It's been working, it's been fun and it's been weird. So let's keep the party going.


Horror Anthology 2020 (Temporarily closed)

We want stories with an eye on society that speaks to larger themes than just murder and mayhem. It should still be considered literary in nature. Think Beloved or “The Lottery” and not something you’d see on Creepypasta (sorry Creepypasta).

Note: Due to overwhelming interest, we are closed for submissions until we clear through our backlog. Please contact us with any questions.
