SUBMISSIONS

Follow @CollusionBooks for submission calls & news.

Collusion welcomes sequences of collaborative poetry—as well as cross-art collaborations with poetic elements—for digital publication in the occasional anthology series 2×4.

Each submission (6 to 10 poems and/or artworks) must be a unified collaborative project. While individual poems/artworks may be created solo, the project as a whole must be conceived and composed by two actively & equally collaborating artists. This shared 

Publication is digital, with 2×4 editions offered on a pay-what-you-want basis. All reader donations toward an edition of 2×4 are split among that edition’s contributors, and all contributors & donors receive an exclusive ebook adaptation of the digital chapbook.

Submit via the form below by AUGUST 31 to be considered for publication in 2×4^3 (fall, 2021). Submissions received by this date will also be considered for publication in 2×4^4 (spring, 2022). 

Collusion Books is currently closed to unsolicited submissions of chapbook manuscripts of collaborative poetry for print publication. We will re-open in spring of 2023, at which time conceptual, formal, & speculative works will be particularly welcome.

Collusion is a design-forward press, and we love collaborating with our authors and artists in the editing process and in exploring design options that complement or enhance the work. If you intend to submit your chapbook in a pre-designed format, we encourage you to add a note indicating your interesting in collaborating through to the publication stage.

Each manuscript (approximately 24 to 40 pages) must be a unified collaborative project. While individual poems or components of the project may be created solo, the manuscript as a whole must be conceived and composed by 2 or more actively & equally contributing authors and/or artists.

Regretfully, we have permanently closed our Tafseer imprint and are no longer accepting manuscript submissions from solo translators. Collaborative translations (by two or more actively and equally participating translators) are still welcome as submissions to Collusion.
