Thank you for your interest in Under a Warm Green Linden. Submissions are now being accepted for Issue 4, scheduled for publication on winter solstice 2017.

  • There are two ways to submit: 
    • (1) send one unpublished poem, any length or style
    • (2) send two to five unpublished poems with a $2.50 reading fee, a portion of which supports reforestation projects, in accordance with our green mission.
We are also delighted to invite submissions of chapbook manuscripts for our open reading period. 
Ends on March 20, 2018$12.00
$12.00
Green Linden Press is delighted to welcome submissions of chapbook manuscripts to be considered for publication in its Chapbook Series. Our mission is simple: to foster excellent poetry. Poets are encouraged to read from our online journal, Under a Warm Green Linden, to become familiar with work that excites us. 

  • Send an unpublished manuscript from 12–40 pages (either doc, docx, or pdf). 
  • Include an acknowledgments page indicating poems that have been previously published. 
  • Include a brief biographical statement in the space provided below.
  • Simultaneous submissions are allowed.
  • Multiple submissions are permissible.
  • Co-authored manuscripts are welcome. 
  • Manuscripts in translation are welcome.
  • There are two reading fee options: $12 to have your manuscript considered; $20 to have your manuscript considered and to have a book or broadside of your choosing mailed to you. If you choose the latter, please email your selection and address to greenlindenpress at gmail dot com. 
  • Notification will be made on or before summer solstice. Chapbook publication will be in the fall or winter. 
  • Should your manuscript be selected, you will receive 20 copies, and your book will be promoted online and at book festivals. 
  • This is not a contest. Manuscripts will not be read blind. Publication decisions will be made by Christopher Nelson, the editor of Green Linden Press, in consultation with an advisory board of poets.  
  • Green Linden Press intends to publish one or more manuscripts from this reading period; however, we reserve the right to publish no manuscripts if we feel that none fit with our aesthetic. 
  • A portion of the proceeds from this open reading period and book sales will support reforestation efforts.
