  • Toad Press publishes 1-3 chapbooks each year.
  • Chapbooks accepted for publication will appear the following Summer/Fall. 
  • Payment is in copies only. 
  • Reading fees range from $0-$12 — please make the fee selection that’s right for you! Reading fees help us to cover the costs associated with running a small press, and we appreciate your support. Submitters who select the $10 or $12 “submit + choose a book” will receive one of our available backlist titles in the mail.
  • Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but please do us the courtesy of withdrawing your manuscript immediately if it is accepted elsewhere. 
  • Did you remember that we only publish translations? Great!
