We like strong writing, well-crafted worlds, and original voices. If this means excessive use of profanity, sex, or violence, then so be it. However, pushing the envelope of good taste is one thing, grossing out the editors is another. Whether or not we think a piece of writing is edgy or has just gone too far basically boils down to a matter of taste. We do appreciate the beauty in the subtle and the sublime. Can writing be both beautiful and profane, violent and subtle, or edgy and sublime?  We think so.   

We will make an effort to respond as promptly as possible. Response times vary - however, average turnaround time on submissions is 4-6 weeks.

Questions? Please feel free to query us about the status of your submission at any time, particularly if the wait exceeds our turnaround time at pinknarcissuspress@gmail.com.

All Pink Narcissus Press publications will be made available in both trade paperback and e-book format.

The editors at Pink Narcissus Press are currently considering longer works (around 50,000 words and up) for future publication. In particular, we are interested in fiction novels that are well-written but may have been passed over by the larger publishing houses because they do not neatly fit into a specific genre or are just not "commercial" enough. If you have such a novel, then Pink Narc might be the home for your work. Although we will consider most types of speculative fiction, preference will be given to novellas and novels with strong elements of fantasy and/or sci-fi.

We will not consider unfinished manuscripts, unsolicited short story collections, or non-fiction. No simultaneous submissions.

Please submit the entire manuscript. A synopsis (of any length) or outline of the work is appreciated.
