Sundress Review Series Open to Recently Published Books

As part of Sundress’s ongoing commitment to service, we would like to renew our offer to review books that have been released in 2020. COVID-19 has caused immeasurable hardship in the literary community by canceling readings, launches, tours, and other needed promotional efforts.

To combat this, Sundress Publications is now accepting submissions for consideration for inclusion in our review series, Sundress Reads. We’re looking to write featured reviews for books or chapbooks with release dates from January 1-December 31, 2020. We at Sundress particularly hope to champion writers whose work highlights human struggle and challenges misconceptions. 

Authors or publishers of books published within this date range are invited to submit books, chapbooks, or anthologies in any genre for consideration by our reviewers who are standing by. Submissions will be considered on a rolling basis. Sundress does not assign reviews, but instead makes all materials available to our reviewers for individual selection.

For immediate consideration, please forward an electronic copy of the book (PDFs preferred), author bio, photo of the cover, and a link to the publisher’s website to with “Sundress Reads: Title” as the subject line. In addition, we request that one print copy be mailed to Sundress Academy for the Arts, ATTN: Sundress Reads, 195 Tobby Hollow Lane, Knoxville, TN 37931 to support the library for writers in retreat at SAFTA. 

Submissions to Sundress Reads will remain eligible for selection for one year. Hard copies will become a permanent part of the Sundress Academy for the Arts library and will be made available to SAFTA fellows and staff as well as by request to affiliate journals for further reviews.
