Hybrid is a small publisher focused on thoughtful fiction, exploratory poetry, and creative non-fiction, with a particular interest in LGBTQIA+ writing.
The goal of Hybrid is to provide well-versed and sophisticated works of fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. We want writing that gets us thinking about ourselves, stories that span genres, words that change the way we look at the world. We are particularly focused on the publication and advancement of LGBTQIA+ writing. Hybrid is now open for anthology submissions, and will soon re-open for larger work queries.
Authors and readers alike are finding that this new reality tough to weather, but so are publishers. Hybrid is no exception.
Today, we’d like to share a poem from Jen Durbent’s wonderful poetry collection, canon. The collection features works on a wide variety of topics and varying in form from epic to haiku.
Hybrid Ink is now open for queries for short story collections, essay and letter collections, and poetry collections! You can find out more information on our submissions page.
Earlier today, the ever-delightful Lindsay Ellis came out with a video about her process of getting her book (which we’re eager to read!) picked up for publication that shed some light on what goes into a book deal. While I’ll outline it very briefly below, it’s well worth watching the video in full to hear Lindsay’s take on the process.
As I work to build Hybrid up into something more, I’d like to share my thoughts on a few topics that I really enjoy about working with books! I hope you enjoy.
If you ask any writer, you’ll get some…pretty complicated thoughts on genre and what all it entails. If you ask any publisher, and you’d better be prepared to sit down for an hour or two to hear all of their thoughts.
And, well, I’ve got some time…
