Express Yourself Today by submitting your poem or essay on the subjects listed below or your manuscript on virtually any subject.  Dragon’s Press is presenting an opportunity for the previously unheard voices of the poetic world to come to the forefront.  We are also looking for essays on political or social issues and your manuscripts for publication.  We welcome previously published poets, essayists and authors to submit unpublished works, as well.  We publish fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, short stories and anthologies of poetry and essays on any subjects, excluding pornography, animal abuse and hate speech.

Keep your wording clean and pure, no hate speech, no animal cruelty, no defamatory commentary will be allowed, no profanity will be, either.

We welcome forthright, thought provoking writing.  The best writing will be featured in Dragon’s Press venues.  We publish the superior entries submitted in our Gazette, “Wizard Alchemy.”  Once a year, Dragon’s Press will publish brief bios of all selected authors along with their works.  Your writing could be in these books!  This year’s books will be titled:

Silent Voices Heard, Poetry: Volume I,”

and

Silent Voices Heard, Essays: Volume I.”

These books will be published in the traditional, printed format, as well as electronically as eBooks.  They will be for sale on the web site by pre-order any time you want to reserve a copy.

Please keep each poetry submission to a maximum of 40 lines, which is far more than most contests allow; there is no minimum line count, however.  Write your poems using any subject, but here are a few suggestions listed below:

Midnight at the Oasis
Summer
Dusk or Twilight
