    Small presses sound like they do beautiful thing, I should really start looking for the right one for me.
    Why did god create a dual universe?
    So he might say
    Be not like me. I am alone.'
    And it might be heard.

    Definitely check their websites and maybe read a few of the authors that publish from them. Astraea Press is very specific about certain things as it's a christian company -- though your work does not have to be religiously themed to write for them. Here's what I mean, http://www.astraeapress.com/submissions.html

    Darcy, if you write romances, you should check out that link too. Though they publish other genres, they focus on romance. But it must be "clean."

    Hope that helps!

    Yeah my work is not clean. haha

    But thankfully, there's literally a small press for everything.

    lol, yeah I'm sure you'll find a fit. You might even shoot an e-mail to my publisher and ask her advice. She was in the publishing industry for several years before starting Astraea and might be able to point you in the right direction. http://www.astraeapress.com/contact.html

    Thank you. That looks like a decent company. I like writing young adult fiction. I had a weird high school experience and so I like vicariously living out one more ideal.

    No problem to the both of you. Glad I could help!

    Darcy, the main character of "Harp Lessons" is essentially a fictionalized version of myself as a freshman in college. Though I never studied at NYU and never fell in love with a man from Ireland. I totally understand where you are coming from.

    I had 4 short stories published but it doesn't really count because my sister was editor of the magazine so I didn't face as much chance of rejection as others might, anyway only the first one was any good, the other three were just crap spin offs of the original story, it's just embarrassing reading them back now (annoyingly the first one was anonymous but the later 3 weren't, it should have been the other way round)

    Shea, I emailed her and she really couldn't help me with anything. Thanks for the contact anyway, I'm still looking around.

    Oh, well. Worth a shot. Good luck!

    Nielgee, I'll look at some of my old stuff from high school sometimes, and think "Did I really let my teacher read that?" I'm glad I never tried to publish any of it... lol

    I thought I'd bring this up in this thread:

    I was thinking of writing a collection of poetry specifically for the chapbook genre which I've researched a little and it seems like a very cool form of publication. Has anyone looked into this? It seems like chapbook publishers seem like respectable companies and I would love to see my work in that form. Any advice?

    Make sure they have a good editor, expect to do most of your own marketing, and only go for a small and inexpensive run first of all.

    Two short stories and a poem in community college "literary journal". They pretty much published anything submitted though I think.
