About Mozark Press
Mozark Press is a small publishing company in central Missouri dedicated to producing quality paperback books. We will publish short story collections, inspirational works, anthologies, general fiction and non-fiction.
We plan to publish 1-5 new books per year. Our first book will be launched by the end of February 2010.
Mozark Press will publish only books that meet our standards. We expect manuscripts to be polished and error-free when submitted.
Contact us if you want to see your work in print, but haven't been successful with a major publishing company. Maybe you have considered self-publishing, but do not have the time or know-how to do it yourself. We've been there, done that and wouldn't wish it on anyone.
We are interested in new or established authors. Mozark Press will partner with our authors. We will provide a complimentary author webpage for one year. We won't ask you to sign a long-term contract and you will retain the copyright to your work.
We do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. If you have a completed manuscript you would like us to consider, send a query letter to Our Publisher.

The Pushcart Prize is the "best of the small presses" and includes poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. Nominations are submitted by December 1, and winners are announced in June of the following year.
