VAO Publishing

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Welcome to VAO Publishing's on-line submission interface. This is where you can upload the pieces you want us to consider including in either Along the River II or Border Noir.

In addition, VAO Publishing is interested in releasing a small number of titles from local authors every year. There isn't a specific genre that we want to promote more than any other: we simply want to provide a venue for the expression of local writers with a compelling story and voice.

If you are interested in having us consider your work, you should first submit a pitch (a short description of the story you want to tell).

If the idea strikes a chord with our editorial staff, we'll request the first five chapters (or an equivalent percentage of the overall text). We may then decide your book is a good fit (or we may request the remainder of your manuscript before making a decision).
