Rust Belt Bindery Submissions
Rust Belt Bindery accepts unsolicited manuscripts of poetry and prose year round through submittable. Due to the nature of our work, we do not accept submissions over 4,500 words. In most cases, we only consider unpublished manuscripts. Please order one of our books to get a feel for what kind of work we publish.

Include a brief cover letter with your submission. Please wait until you have heard back from us before you submit again. We may take up to three or more months to respond. Please click here to submit your manuscript. If you have any questions, you may contact Blake Kimzey at
