Blue Skirt Productions is on hiatus due to not enough bodies nor hours in the day to maintain it at the level we would like. We apologize for this news. If you have submitted something and have not heard back from us, do not consider it “rejected,” but do note that we are not publishing anything new at this time, and your work will be best served by submitting it somewhere new. We will reassess our situation in a year and determine at that time if we will continue as a publisher or not.
Blue Skirt Productions welcomes submissions of short Gut Punch Fiction: emotional, philosophical, and transgressive works of literary fiction that punch the reader in the gut. We are seeking works of 100-3,000 words in length for publication on our website. We welcome simultaneous submissions, just let us know as soon as possible if your work is accepted elsewhere. All submissions must be original and unpublished. We acquire first-time electronic publication rights. Rights revert back to writers and artists upon publication. Unfortunately we cannot offer payment to our contributors at this time. All posts will be archived and viewable on our site.
If you have something you think would be appropriate for our website, please send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the words “Website Submission” in the subject line.

Blue Skirt Productions seeks to publish Gut Punch Fiction: emotional, philosophical, and transgressive works of literary fiction that punch the reader in the gut.
We may be a small press, but Blue Skirt publishers give each manuscript we acquire our full attention and expertise when it comes to editing, book and cover design, and distribution. We also work with our authors to arrange speaking/reading engagements and other publicity.
If you have a novella or novel you would like us to consider for publication, please send a query, short synopsis, and the first five pages (during open submissions) to Submissions@BlueSkirtProductions.com. In the subject line of your email, please write “Press Submission: (title of manuscript)”.
