The Elephants is a small independent press based in America, Canada, and Singapore. We publish heterodox materials as acts of love and solidarity with the communities in which they’re created; we're with the underdogs.
We publish two books a year, distributed by SPD. We're open for submissions from May 1 through June 30. If you have one for us you can link to our Submissions manager here.
We read poetry, essays, memoirs, short story collections, novels and novellas, translations, children's literature, as well as any cross-genre, translation, or multi-lingual work (etc.). There are no restrictions on your legal status, citizenship, location, or whatever else. Anyone from anywhere can submit.
If you're a reviewer or have other questions for us, send us a message through the contact page.
