SUBMISSIONS:



Wood Works welcomes submissions. At the risk of appearing retro, I prefer to hold hard copy in the hand when making hard decisions. Be sure to include a Self-Addressed, Stamped Envelope if you wish a response, and appropriate postage if you wish your manuscript returned. Comments about the press's intentions, desires and prejudices might be useful for the writer's task, so I have written a couple of short essays on the separate GUIDELINES page below. There is also a note about the payment agreement I make with authors. Give it a look.
