ABOUT PALOOKA PRESS
We take great pride in reading every word and giving each chapbook its due attention. We consider manuscripts of all styles and genres and aren't looking for a particular aesthetic. We're willing to give anything a fair chance. Please send your best fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama, graphic narrative, or hybrid work. Manuscripts should be 25-100 pages, roughly. Each submission comes with a gift: a digital chapbook or digital copy of Palooka.
