Zemii Publishing is a hybrid publishing house offering publishing services for authors.

Zemii Press (501(c)(3) in process) offers traditional publishing services for authors from under-represented and challenged backgrounds. 


Zemii Publishing and Zemii Press are independent presses that publish a small number books of fiction and nonfiction every year. We’re looking for novels, memoirs, creative nonfiction, or hybrid works of exceptional literary merit that demonstrate a high level of mastery.

Zemii Publishing and Press' publications are diverse in style and subject. Our primary interests are in international stories, especially stories infrequently heard.

 With your submission, be sure to include:

  1. A cover letter that includes the author’s name, contact information, and a brief synopsis of the work.  For General Submissions, please include the above information and describe the author’s background, list any publication credits if applicable, and explain why the work is a fit for Zemii Press.
  2. The work itself. For General Submissions, writers may submit either the full manuscript or a sample of between 20 and 30 pages. Please keep in mind that full manuscripts take longer to review. All manuscripts should include page numbers on every page.

Given the high volume of submissions we receive, please expect a response time of three to twelve months. We appreciate your patience. Phone calls, emails, and letters will not speed up the process, and are strongly discouraged.
