Who We Are

White on Black logo

Broken Leg Books is a chapbook press. We aim to publish quality, innovative, ground- and heartbreaking works of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Our goal is to make art accessible to everyone without forcing artists to sacrifice their time for “exposure.” Through fairly priced print versions and pay-what-you-can ebooks, we hope to give our authors as wide of an audience as possible. Beyond that, we give our authors 100% of the royalties from our sales, plus a $100 honorarium.

How do we plan on doing this?

Broken Leg Books utilizes on-demand publishing to keep printing costs as low as possible. We ask for a sliding scale donation of $1 to $20 for every submission to help us pay for hosting and other operational costs.

Our editors are donating their time and experience.

What are we looking for?

Our aesthetic is:
Magical realism – Marquez, Keret, Gonzales
Flash fiction – Cross-Smith, Lennon, Barthelme
Experimental fiction – Offill, Steinberg, Egan
Other stuff – Kendrick Lamar, Shameless, Dogs

And you!
