Otis Books will be accepting submissions from November 1–30, 2017.

Otis Books is a project of the MFA Writing program at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. We publish book-length contemporary fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, with special interests in translation and writing from and about Los Angeles.

There is no reading fee.

Please take a look at our backlist to familiarize yourself with the types of writing we publish.

Let us know what works you have previously published or if this would be your first book publication. Please note that multiple submissions, excerpts and chapbook-length texts, files in other formats, and mss sent outside the submission period will not be considered. While simultaneous submissions are acceptable, we ask that you notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere.
