Southern Fried Karma seeks submissions of unpublished book-length fiction. We focus on cultivating the artistic voices of the new millennium with a Southern accent. The works we seek go beyond stereotypical depictions and illuminate the multiplicity of the Southern experience: past, present, or future, the good, the bad, and especially the unexpected.

Please submit your work through our online portal, which you can find below. We do not accept manuscripts by snail mail or email. We recycle manuscripts that arrive by snail mail and delete those that arrive by email.

Please format your manuscript as follows:

  • Include your contact information on the title page (full name, email address, phone number, mailing address)
  • Include your full name and email address in the document header
  • Set 1-inch margins on all sides of pages
  • Use 12-point Times New Roman font
  • Double-space the entire text
  • Save as: .doc or .docx

 Please include in your query letter:

  • Your contact information (full name, email address, phone number, mailing address)
  • A synopsis of your project
  • Word count
  • A brief personal bio
  • Any writing/publishing credits or history you may have
  • Your professional website and social media handle if applicable
  • How you heard about SFK Press

We look forward to reading your work and will respond to your query within 2-4 weeks. Rest assured, every incoming query is being read and evaluated with care.
