OUTPOST19 is always on the lookout for innovative projects. We publish exceptional fiction and engaged nonfiction. Take a look at our list and read a few of our titles to get a sense of what makes sense for us.

To address the intense interest in short novels, we've also launched The Shortish Project, a new  initiative dedicated to promoting and publishing short novels. 

Thank you for considering us. We're interested in novels, memoirs, biographies, reportage, short fiction and essay collections and innovative hybrids of all stripes.

We publish in print and digital formats, typically at a conventional book length. 

Please prepare us for the work we're about to encounter. Describe it briefly, and tell us a bit about yourself, including any previous projects, short or long, in print or other media.

Include the first fifty pages or the full manuscript. Thank you for sharing your work with us.

We try to respond promptly. If you have any questions, please get in touch: jon@outpost19.com

The Shortish Project is a new publishing program dedicated to short novels -- original fiction from 75 pages to 200 pages (or so) in length. (Or about 14,000 words to 42,000 words.) 

Unlike our sister organization Outpost19, The Shortish Project is a "open-door" program, open to all styles & genres, with limited gatekeeping. We encourage everyone to join in!

Titles published by The Shortish Project are distributed in paperback and ebook editions. The process is streamlined and designed to support each author's own marketing plan. We can move fast or slow.
