Submissions

Ayin Press is committed to cultivating conversations across borders of history and identity in order to forge ties of common interest and envision shared futures. We seek to publish a polyphony of voices from within and beyond the Jewish world.

See below for current submission opportunities, and sign up for our newsletter to learn about open submission calls coming soon.


Ayin Books

Ayin Press is now accepting book proposals and manuscripts for review. We are particularly interested in works that connect to our editorial frames of Speculative Theology, Political Imagination, and Radical Aesthetics. Please peruse our website for more information about these curatorial commitments, and for a sense of our general aesthetics and ethos. All genres of writing are appreciated, and we welcome multiple submissions.

Please submit your Ayin book proposal or manuscript here.


Somewhere Books

Somewhere is an imprint of Ayin Press that publishes children’s books, art books, comics, zines, and other graphic and illustrated works. Universal in scope, Somewhere is a play on the concept of utopia—whose etymology in Latin means no-place. Rather than dwell in abstraction, our books seek to make imagined worlds as tangible as possible—easily visitable for both children and adults alike. At once classic and experimental, Somewhere is a place to explore the limits of our imagination and deepen our connection with the world.

We are accepting submissions of all kinds, currently with special interest in children’s books and other illustrated works.

Please submit your Somewhere book proposal or manuscript here.


Folios

A folio is a collection of works related by theme, medium, or process. Folios can be the work of a single author/artist, or a collective effort of multiple contributors. Not too short, not too long. Like a zine or a chapbook for the internet.

Curators, writers, editors, and artists are welcome to pitch folios that work within one genre or experiment with a multiplicity of mediums. We want to see digital zines, chapbooks of essays and poems, multimedia exhibitions made for the internet, dialogues and exchanges, sketchbooks, and compilations of linked works in any style or form.

Send us your folio proposal here.


Visual Art

Ayin Press is looking for visual art to accompany our text-based digital and print publications. If you would like us to consider publishing any of your original images in this way, please submit them here. Honoraria will be decided on an individual basis following acceptance and proposed usage.
