From the Moving Parts Press guidelines:

Moving Parts Press is not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time. Rice says, "As a small publisher, I have found that I can design, print and publish one limited edition book, and its related trade edition, every two years at best. Somehow I manage to maintain a small chapbook series, with new books appearing at uneven intervals. I wish I had the ability to undertake more projects."
