***Our 2019 publishing calendar is full. We are closing for submissions until June 2019. However, feel free to submit to our Front Porch Blog. We will also be accepting short stories for an upcoming charity anthology. ***

We are currently interested in receiving queries for fiction (adult and young adult), narrative nonfiction, and memoir.  In fiction, we would like to see stories about or set in the south, particularly the Gulf South region and New Orleans. We’d love to see quirky characters that march to the beat of their own drum. 

Also, we’d like stories with strong characters overcoming adversity. If your book can make us laugh out loud, that’s a definite plus as well. 

In nonfiction, we would love to see stories about members of the military and their families. 

Our Current #MSWL:
