Home » About Us » For Authors and Artists

What does RWP publish?

We specialize in cross-genre literature from emerging authors. Readers love our growing catalog of literary and commercial fiction, creative nonfiction, narrative poetry, and soon—graphic novels and chapbooks. We embrace stories that blend popular genres like fantasy, scifi, specfic, history, and humor into something new and tantalizingly impalpable. If it’s a good story, we know our readers will love it.

What kind of writers are we looking for?

We seek authors who want to be a part of our community for the long haul as we grow together and raise up new writers.


What kind of artists are we looking for?

Running Wild Press accepts book-length submissions by invitation only. As our capacity grows, we will open for submissions from agents and independent authors. Until then, we hope you’ll join our band of merry misfits on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Submissions for Running Wild Press anthologies are open for short windows each year. Our response time for submissions is three to six months. The readers and editors thank you for your patience.
