US small press Tolsun Publishing Inc is (in their own words): ‘a non-profit, small press based out of the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts.
‘We publish daring, energetic books that use separate parts to construct a whole: poetry, short stories, comics poetry, hybrids, photo stories, flash memoir, and more. We treasure creativity, and so we may not know we love something until we see it. Art, like the jackalope, cannot be restrained by classification or form.’
The submission period runs until 31st May 2019. There is a submission fee, except on 15 May. Full info on submitting your work of many parts here.
