Delphinium – a flower that once cut, with care and nurturing, can bloom again.

This will be a print journal, published twice a year. Our deadlines are rolling, June and November, with publication of the journal in July and December.

We accept:

  • Poetry – 3-5 poems, no line limit.
  • Short fiction – up to 5000 words.
  • Creative non-fiction – up to 5000 words.
  • Other – we will consider nanotext, flash fiction, ad fiction, or any creative thing you want to throw at us!

Include short bio in the email. All submissions should include names, contact information, and be in manuscript format.

Published authors will receive one free copy of the journal and three more are offered at cost.

*ReadLips Press attains First American Rights. All rights revert back to the author upon publication. (Question any press that does not give you back your rights!)

*ReadLips Press will consider previously published materials. Please state when and where it has been previously published. (And make certain you have your rights!)

*ReadLips Press does NOT charge fees for submissions at this time. (It is inappropriate to charge writers exorbitant fees for submission. Question any press charging more than a few bucks.)

Email us with questions, comments, concerns, recipes for coconut manna, or anything that strikes you – ReadLips Press @ gmail.com  (No spaces, of course, but we have to try to outsmart those darned bots.)

ReadLips Press helps promote writers. We attend conferences where our journals are displayed – and authors are welcome to come and be at our table!
