The Elephants are an independent, open-genre press based in America, Canada, and Singapore, distributed by SPD. We publish heterodox materials as acts of love and solidarity with the communities in which they’re created; we're with the underdogs.
We're open for submissions through June 30. If you have one for us you can link to our Submissions manager here.
We welcome novels, collections of poetry, lyric essays, novellas, short story collections, translations, children's literature, hybrid and visual work, multilingual work, or anything else we can turn into a full-length book. There are no restrictions on your legal status, citizenship, location, or whatever else they can think of. We publish two books a year.
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.
