4. Subscriptions for 2009-2010

3. Octopus Books will hold an open reading period for full-length poetry manuscripts in April of 2009. Manuscripts must be submitted between April Fools day and April 30, 2009. We prefer you submit your manuscripts electronically. To submit, purchase the $10 reading fee through paypal from the button on the Octopus Books website on the "Submit" page, then attach your manuscript in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line of the email write your name and "Manuscript Submission." There is no need to introduce yourself in the body of the email. Your email will be handled anonymously by an intern. Your manuscript will be forwarded in a different file without any identifying markers and read blindly by the editors and other readers. Do not include your name on the manuscript.
5. Octopus T-Shirts are available for purchase through this post only, and not on the website. $12 (includes shipping). You may use this link to paypal to make your purchase. Indicate in your notes which size you would like (S, M, L, XL).
