Brick Mantel Books is dedicated to publishing works of literary excellence by new and established authors.
We seek literary fiction that is character-driven, engaging, provocative, lyrical, and artistic, as well as out-of-the-ordinary work that fits our mission. We also publish contemporary, innovative poetry that pushes boundaries. In short, we publish work we have a deep connection to.
When submissions are open, we accept full-length novels (between 40,000 and 120,000 words) and poetry books (between 40 and 80 poems suggested). Chapbooks and novellas are not accepted. We are not currently accepting short story collections.
