This particular division of BHB is still devoted to the publication of first books by promising poets who have never had a collection of poems of over 30 pages published. Please note that chapbooks do not disqualify poets from being “new” but full length books do, whether published or not. Chapbooks are 42 pages or fewer. Books are 43 to 200 pages.
Submitting to NPS is different from that of its parent press, BrickHouse.
- 42-80 page manuscript of original poetry
- $10 reading fee
Please understand that we receive many submissions for NPS, and the staff offers comments on most. Therefore, it may take up to 6 months to receive a reply and your manuscript.
For further information on how to submit, see the Submissions page.
