WE WANT TO READ YOU!
The Wisconsin Writers Association Press aids WWA member authors and others in following through with our organization goals to help writers learn, grow, and publish in the literary field. The Wisconsin Writers Association Press exists specifically for writers who tell Wisconsin-themed stories.
What We Publish
WWA Press welcomes original material of good quality that celebrates and explores all walks of life and for all ages, be it historical, fictional, nonfiction, lyrical, or speculative. Family friendly, please.
Submissions accepted from authors with completed manuscripts that have been conscientiously edited and proofread.
Authors should submit samples of new, original work in English. The work should be tied to Wisconsin in some way.
Material published by the WWA press will not be eligible for the Jade Ring or any other WWA contests.
The Press will consider most genres or literary works. The best lengths for works in fiction is 60,000 - 100,000 words. If you have specific questions about your genre, please ask before submitting. Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Press will consider work in all areas that focus on promoting Wisconsin life, culture, history, biography, poetry, essays, or combinations thereof. Full-length work of 40,000 - 80,000 words is preferred. Collections of poetry and essays or children's books will be considered on a case basis.
