Check Out our Anthology Opportunities

We can not thank you enough for all our submissions over the last few years. Anthologies put Quillkeepers Press on the map. They are a cornerstone of our organization. Our purpose has always been to uplift writers, help broaden their audiences, and help guide them toward their goals. Over the years, our anthologies have changed. They now include a small submission fee to help cover the cost of production. We also have around 3 opportunities a year versus our older style of 6. This creates room for other traditional, hybrid, and self-publishing projects. However, staying true to our mission and purpose, we will always reserve space for our beloved anthologies.  

Spoken Anthology 2023

We are excited to put together our first ever Spoken Word Audio Book Anthology. We are looking for spoken word poetry and prose to include in our project. We do not have a theme for this one, we just want pieces that move us and the other listeners.

*** It is very important to read the FAQ's  on this project. We have to put this together in a very specific manner due to time restraints and the programs we are using, if the submission doesn't follow the guidelines it will be rejected. You can find the FAQ's in the "submit here" link below.

Submissions are Closed

Critique Reviews

Our critique reviews are a paid service for the up and coming author whose work needs a little finesse, who's getting their manuscript print ready, or who wants an honest opinion of their manuscript. With this review we will provide honest feedback of your manuscript and where your strengths and weaknesses lie in your work. With this service you will get detailed suggestions on how to strengthen your weak points to tighten up your manuscript and get it ready for the next step of your writing career. We are a traditional publisher as well as self-publishing services group, and polishing manuscripts is our forte. We take great pride and care in all our projects, treating yours with the professionalism and attentiveness it deserves, providing you with quality service. With a plethora of resources at our disposal we are willing and able to help get your manuscript where you desire it to be.

This service is for up to the first 3 chapters (10k word limit) of a novel or up to 10k words of poetry. Submit here 

If you would like us to review more than that, please contact us via email to discuss your needs.
