What Kinds of Manuscripts Is Beautiful Dreamer Press Looking For?

Look at our blog post on “What Kind of Press Is Beautiful Dreamer?” It will give you a good idea of what topics we are interested in and what approaches we like to take.

How to Submit

Beautiful Dreamer Press has selected its titles for 2020. However, if you would like us to consider your manuscript for publication in 2021, you have two options:

  • Pitch it to us in person at the 17th Annual Saints+Sinners Literary Festival in New Orleans in March, 2020. We will have an “open pitch” session between noon and 2 PM on March 27th. Festival details can be found here.
  • Submit it by e-mail, following the guidelines given below.


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) or plain text (.txt suffix). If neither 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 before we respond to it.
