Frequently asked questions



How and when did Honeysuckle Press begin?

Honeysuckle Press is a sister organization of Winter Tangerine, a literary magazine devoted to evocative poetry, prose, & visual art. In 2016, after nearly four years of publishing vivid, socially-aware work, we decided to expand and establish a fully-fledged publishing house. We plan to continue to uplift writers of color, queer writers, women writers, trans and nonbinary writers, as well as writers from other culturally distinct communities. Honeysuckle Press is our way of bring the work of our contributors to an even larger audience.

When will I hear back about the chapbook contest?

We will begin notifications in the summer.

How can I join your team?

Thank you for your interest! At this time, we do not have any open positions on staff. However, we are accepting applications for our digital and NYC-based internship program!

I applied for a position on staff but didn't hear back from you. Will I get a response?

Due to volume, we aren't able to respond to all staff applications. However, we do keep all applications on file so if we have an opening in the future, we'll be in touch.

You don't seem to have a store yet -- how can I buy your books?

We expect to publish our first set of chapbooks in the Spring of 2018. Until then, you can read Winter Tangerine for an idea of the kind of work we're interested in, and you can donate to us here.

Are you accepting full-length manuscripts? Can I send a query?

We are currently accepting queries for full-length poetry collections and short-story collections! You can find more information here.
