What is Open Page?

Submission Guidelines

All submissions must be in English.

All genres are accepted. (Thriller, Drama, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, etc.)

All works must fit at least one (1) of the following:

  • Essays and Short Stories: 3,000 words or less
  • Books: A single chapter
  • Poetry: No restrictions

We want to keep things simple and kind

Therefore, we do not accept agented submissions. That being said, if you have an agent but have written a work that is not represented by an agent, agency, or manager, Blank Cover Press will consider indie. Therefore, it qualifies for submission. We accept nothing that is done through an agent, agency, or a manager of any kind.

Submission Process:

Submit your work in Word Document form only by emailing or filling out the form below.

By submitting, you agree to terms listed above and below.
Blank Cover Press does not own the rights to your work in any way but has permission to promote and feature it.

Submitted works must be copyrighted by the author

When does a work become copyrighted? In most countries, once an author creates a work, copyright protection is automatic.

With your submission, please provide the following:

  • Your first and last name (legal or pseudonym)
  • IG/FB handle: @example (so we can tag you if/when it’s posted on social media!) 
  • Three (3) hashtag words that describe the work: #example #example #example
