V Press LC

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

 V Press will accept submissions for the categories below February 15 through April 15. We look forward to reading your submissions once the contest opens.


Compilation Prize

  • Include a book between 75,000 and 100,00 words--preference will be given to works that adhere more closely to the word count. However, stronger works that need the additional words will still be given fair consideration as well as those with fewer words ($35 reading fee) 
  • Note: we are flexible here. Compilations can be many things: short stories, essays, creative nonfiction works, nonfiction flash pieces, fiction flash pieces, and any number of hybrid pieces. Know this: poetry that is not part of a hybrid manuscript as well as graphic art works will be denied and the author will lose any reading fees incurred. If in doubt, email Torie Amarie at torie@vpresslc.com to see if your work fits the contest.


Novel Prize

  • Include a book between 75,000 and 100,00 words--preference will be given to works that adhere more closely to the word count. However, stronger works that need the additional words will still be given fair consideration as well as those with fewer words ($35 reading fee) Note: we are flexible here-but make each word count. 


General Book Submission(s)

  • Submit a query letter, a synopsis, and the first three chapters of your manuscript for consideration. If we are interested we will offer you a  competitive book contract. V Press LC accepts any of these genres: Novel, NF, Flash, Short Stories, Essays, or Hybrid Manuscripts.  Poetry manuscripts will not be considered in the general book submission category unless the poems are part of a hybrid manuscript that blends poetry with prose pieces. 


Reading fees help to offset publishing costs.
