If you have recently submitted to FutureCycle Press or have experience with this market, please submit a comment below. Recent submission response times are always welcome and helpful to other writers.

From the FutureCycle Press guidelines:

Because our editors live in different locales yet must coordinate efficiently to handle their respective tasks, we require digital submissions uploaded by means of the online submission system, Submittable (formerly called Submishmash).

Note: As a general rule, we do not give feedback on work that is submitted to us unless we think we might accept it if recommended revisions are made. Please do not ask.

To submit books and chapbooks by a single author, a submission fee is charged; if accepted, a publishing contract is offered and the work copyrighted in the author's name.
