We are open to manuscript submissions in May and June. We publish two books a year, distributed by SPD. We are not currently accepting unsolicited chapbook or magazine submissions.
The Elephants are an open-genre, independent press publishing heterodox materials as acts of love and solidarity with the communities in which they’re created. We're with the underdogs.
Our advisory board is Omar Berrada, Steve Collis, Jeff Derksen, Chris Nealon, Caryl Pagel, M. NourbeSe Philip, Jonathan Skinner, Juliana Spahr, Mathias Svalina, and Alana Wilcox.
