Otis Books publishes contemporary fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, with special interests in translation and writing from and about Los Angeles. MFA Writing students are involved in all aspects of the press’ activities, from selecting and editing manuscripts to designing and typesetting books, managing production, and getting our titles out into the world.
We'll be reading manuscripts during the month of November 2018. For details, view our Submittable page.
