Sarabande Books

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Sarabande Books is a nonprofit literary press founded in March 1994, in Louisville, Kentucky. Our focus is on poetry, short fiction, and essay, genres that in the recent past have received less than generous attention from the mainstream publishing industry. In an effort to mediate that imbalance and to nurture good writing, Sarabande Books works to provide talented authors with a final product and visibility, in short, a real “home” for their work.
