The Elephants

The Elephants are an open-genre, independent press on the traditional lands of the Squaxin, Cowlitz, and Nisqually tribes, in Olympia, Washington. 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 now 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 book-length manuscripts of poetry, essays, memoirs, short story collections, novels and novellas, translations, children's literature, as well as any cross-genre, translation, multi-lingual work, etc. There are no restrictions on legal status, citizenship, or location. Anyone from anywhere can submit.
