We have an open submission process, and our Editorial Board meets three times a year to discuss manuscripts. Before submitting to us, we strongly recommend that you take the time to familiarize yourself with our list, to make sure that your work will be compatible with our program. We will not respond to submissions that have absolutely nothing to do with our mission of publishing Asian diasporic literature.
Please send your manuscript to us in an electronic format. Files must be sent in a Word document or as a PDF. Direct any questions to Managing Editor Neelanjana Banerjee (neela AT kaya dot com).
In addition to the full text of the manuscript, please include a cover letter that includes the following information:
Works are judged solely on the virtue of the quality of the writing and compatibility with our program; the cover letter is meant primarily to give us more context for your work. Our submission system is not working at this time, so please email your materials to acquisitions AT kaya dot com.
“The most consistent intelligent wide-ranging committed press I know – Kaya is an example of how to turn ‘small’ books into literary arrows that shoot straight and true into the heart of our culture and (of course) ourselves.”
