What Kinds of Manuscripts Is Beautiful Dreamer Press Looking For?

We are most interested in unusual perspectives on topics of interest to the LGBTQ community.

How to Submit

Beautiful Dreamer Press has selected its titles for 2021. However, if you would like us to consider your manuscript for publication in 2022, you can submit a short pitch or a long pitch:

  • Short pitch:
    • The equivalent of 50 pages of 8.5″ x 11″, double-spaced
    • In 12 pt. font
    • Author and title on first page
    • File type can be PDF, Word .doc or .docx, or plain text .txt
    • Include a brief author bio
  • Long pitch: Submit your entire manuscript plus a one-page plot synopsis.
  • Either way, follow the guidelines given below.

Deadline

Submissions for publication by Beautiful Dreamer Press in 2021 are now closed. Submissions for 2022 will open in January, 2021.

Guidelines

We are primarily interested in fiction, either full-length novels or story collections. Manuscripts should be submitted by e-mail to submissions@BeautifulDreamerPress.com. Submission by regular mail (USPS) is discouraged; documents submitted by mail will not be returned. In your submission e-mail, give the title of your manuscript in the subject line. Format should be an attachment, either a Word document (.doc or .docx suffix), plain text (.txt suffix), or PDF. If none of these formats is available to you, please e-mail us for further instructions.

If you do not hear back from us within 30 days, feel free to send a follow-up e-mail.

We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere while still under consideration at BDP.
