If you have been published in Steel Toe Review in the past and now have a new(ish) book you'd like to promote, send us the information, and we'll publish a listing with our next issue.

We lose hundreds of dollars a year to keep our website and submission manager operating. On top of that, Submitable has recently made drastic increases to their pricing. So we basically have to charge a reading fee right now, or we're sunk. Don't be mad about  it. You are supporting the arts with your small donation.

If we get enough submissions to upgrade our account, we'll add a free submission option in the fugure.

In the form below, tell us what sort of thing you are submitting. We assume you've already read our submission guidelines, but if you haven't go back to the previous page and do that.
