*Due to resource issues and a commitment for publication through 2019, we are limiting our 2017 reading period to the month of September only. We will not read any manuscripts that come in after September 30, 2017. Thank you for your interest in Rain Mountain Press.

Rain Mountain Press is an independent publisher committed to enriching literary culture by bringing emerging and often neglected writers to the widest possible audience.

Our mission is to:

Publish works that fall into the categories of experimental, visionary, and literary writing.

Bring back into print important books which might otherwise be lost.

Publish posthumous works.

Give wider audience and exposure to the art of the novella by publishing contemporary works written in that form as individual books of 80 to 100 pages much the way books of poetry are published.

Publish work that falls in between the cracks in terms of style, e.g., poetic prose, hybrids of prose and poetry, memoir/poetry, graphic novels, other kinds of amalgam works, and work that resides in the interstices.

Experiment with presentation, print runs, shapes and illustrations.

We are a small press and can only publish a very limited number of books each year. We are therefore restricting our reading period to the months of September and October. Any queries received outside of our reading period will unfortunately have to be deleted. When querying during the reading period, respond by email with 10 sample pages in the body of the email or attached as a PDF file.
