Litmus Press is a program of Ether Sea Projects, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit literature and arts organization dedicated to publishing innovative, cross-genre, and interdisciplinary work by poets, writers, translators, and artists.

NOTE: We are only accepting work in categories with a "live" link. Please take the time to read instructions and follow guidelines. 

PLEASE do not send work via email as we cannot keep track of those submissions.

We strongly encourage you to order our titles and familiarize yourself with our editorial vision before submitting work for consideration.

Thank you!

Litmus Press seeks submissions of writing engaged with critical / creative forms of inquiry that do not fit into traditional publishing frameworks, disciplinary methodologies, or print formats. Poetry, criticism, and collaborative response that is cross-genre, investigative, and intersectional in nature is of special interest. This call encourages submissions, especially critical work, by and about writers of color. We are seeking previously unpublished “article”- length critical (and/or hybrid) works and “long poems” which do not exceed 35 pages.
