Our mission for SFK Press and The New Southern Fugitives is to "tell a million tales of y’all means all."  We  especially encourage submissions from indigenous, LGBTQIA+, disabled,  current or previously incarcerated, and non-binary people, women, and  people of color. 



SFK Press seeks book-length fiction by fearless authors. We want the multiplicity of  the cosmic experience: past, present, or future, the good, the bad, and especially the unexpected. 

Our 2019 SFK Press Novel Contest is now accepting submissions until June 1, 2019. There is no entry fee.
