Open Submissions

Short story submissions for The Kyanite Press are always open. Novella and novel submissions for Kyanite Publishing or its imprints are open through October 2018. Please follow the guidelines for each imprint as detailed on the submissions page.

Collaborative Teams

We're author-owned and operated and that means we understand how important control is. Our editing, design, and marketing teams solicit creative input at every stage of the process and ensure titles remain marketable. Contact us to find out more.

Accelerated Timelines

Our publishing committee meets weekly and once acquired, a manuscript can be published in as few as eight months, depending on the revision and cover design process. Of course, some titles may be slated for a later release. All titles are approved unanimously.
