The editors at Augury Books have opened this year's reading period for:
— Poetry manuscripts, keeping up the fine tradition that has served us well the past few years with The Book of Lost Things by Patrick Moran, Soldier Quick with Rain by David Joel Friedman and Mantic by Maureen Alsop, and
— For the first time, short story collections.
Please send us your previously unpublished poetry manuscripts (b/w 45-80 pages, not including front and back matter) and short story collections (b/w 80-180 pages) that contain at least three short stories.
We like work that is expertly written and keeps us intrigued. We have fallen in love with writing from many different traditions and on many different subjects -- but we also respond to writing that defies tradition and convention. We just insist on work that demands -- and justifies -- our blind devotion.
