From the Ahsahta Press guidelines:

The press publishes seven full-length books annually. Our usual reading period is March 1 through May 1, but because of a backlog of accepted manuscripts, Ahsahta cannot read unsolicited work until further notice. Please check this site periodically for announcements if you are interested.

The press will continue to read manuscripts for the $1500 Sawtooth Poetry Prize Competition each year between January 1 and March 1.
