Guidelines for Assure Press

Assure Press connects authors and artists with the world through inspirational and enlightening poetry, non-fiction, motivational, and educational literature that is mostly, but not only, in the English language.

  • Book and Chapbook Manuscript Submissions are open year-round!

  • The work does not have to be entirely in English

  • Assure Press does not accept work that has been previously published, in print or online (we do NOT consider self-published books, self-publishing to blogs, message boards, or social media as publication with respect to this rule).

  • Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. If the work is accepted elsewhere, just add a note through Submittable. Please withdraw your work if it is accepted elsewhere. In the case of poetry, if part of your submission has been accepted by another publication, please notify us at

  • We do charge a $10 reading fee per general submission (fee waived for subscribers of Iris Literary Journal).
