Horse Less Press

DoubleCross Press Open Reading Period

Horse Less loves DoubleCross, so we’re sharing their open reading period announcement here!

1) DoubleCross Press will be reading manuscripts from December 1st–31st. For this reading period we will be looking for:
  • our new all-letterpress chapbook series of tiny poetry manuscripts: 7 pages or less
  • our Poetics of the Handmade series of essays on small press culture: this series publishes essays by contemporary hand-bookmakers and writers who engage with the handmade book as publishers, promoters, or curators. With an eye to the book’s past, the series seeks to illuminate the forms, connotations, and communities of the handmade book in early 21st century micropress culture.
Rather than charging a reading fee, we ask that you SUPPORT SMALL PRESSES by buying a chapbook from us or from another small press you admire. 
Please submit manuscripts in PDF or Word formats to: We will respond to submissions in the new year!
