2017 Publishing Submission Guidelines

Lawn Gnome Publishing Submission Process

It’s time to enter Lawn Gnome Publishing’s Submission Period!

The first two zines by Lawn Gnome Publishing were “Atonal Riff-tunes to a Tonedeaf Borderguard” by Michael C Ford (Dec 2012) and Jesse Parent “Like a Thin Veil” (Jan 2013).

So, you have the next great idea? Why not submit it to a small press? Why not submit it to a small press in Phoenix, AZ?

Why not publish Gnome?
