a note from Black Ocean:
"Well, the hour is finally upon us: we begin reading unsolicited submissions on May 1st and will continue to consider anything postmarked up through June 30th. Complete submission guidelines are available for download on our website; follow them to the letter so as not to incur our unholy wrath.
As publishing writers we do not believe in reading fees and will consider all submissions based on the merit of their work and quality of writing. That said; please take the time and consideration to familiarize yourself with our titles before sending us a manuscript. More than simply supporting the press through your purchase, you will be extending us the same respect we have for the submissions we receive."
note: Black Ocean wants Poetry Manuscripts (48-100 pages)
