Rhetoric Askew is dedicated to the support and success of authors and artists.
Why is Rhetoric Askew different from other publishers?
The Editors of Rhetoric Askew are active members of the writing community and one of the complaints we here most often from fellow authors is not receiving feedback on their submissions. At Rhetoric Askew we appreciate the time and effort that goes into creating a piece you believe is ready for submission. Because of our appreciation and respect for the craft, we give feedback. You will not receive a rejection from us (Disclaimer: We will send rejections in those rare cases where the submission glorifies abuse, violence, or otherwise infringes on the rights of another living being). Entries will be evaluated on a multi-point system to determine if they are ready for print, or not. Those which are NOT will receive an invitation to the Creative Development process where one of our editors will walk through the process with the individual to polish their submission until it is the best it can possibly be.
What genres do you accept?
We are looking for everything! We want to see what you can create. We do NOT accept Horror or Erotica. We appreciate those who create such stories but these are simply NOT a good fit for Team Askew or our readers.
How often are the anthologies published?
We are printing Anthology Askew on a quarterly basis.
Do you accept manuscripts?
We are thrilled to announce that starting New Year’s Day, 2018, we will be open to queries for full manuscripts.
What can you offer those who wish to publish with you?
We pride ourselves on offering personal feedback to our authors. Once you make the decision to publish with RA, you will never be alone in the process. Our editors are available to answer questions and work with you on your manuscript. The design team stays in contact with you throughout the process to ensure that the cover design and marketing campaign ads meet your vision for your project while keeping them in-line with what your readers will look for. We have a marketing team that will work with you to organize and design your marketing campaign. We believe that the publishing process should be collaborative, and that is the foundation of RhetAskew Publishing-a division of Rhetoric Askew, LLC.
How can we submit our work to you?
