Submit Your Manuscript
to Steel Toe Books
We annually hold an open reading period for full-length (48-80 page) poetry manuscripts in September/October. There is no reading fee, but we ask each poet who submits to support our press by purchasing one of our titles directly from us. Send your manuscript, along with an order form and a check to:

Happy New Year! 2016 may have been marred by celebrity deaths, and who knows what this year will bring, but we at Steel Toe Books will be doing our part to ensure that it is a year of great poetry.
