Booth publishes four titles of original literature on the first Friday of every month. In addition, we publish two print issues yearly, usually in summer and winter.
Booth debuted in 2009. Our staff is comprised of students, faculty, and alumni from the Butler University MFA program. Butler MFA students and alumni execute approximately 98% of Booth. Copy editing, web design, print issues, t-shirts and merch, and so on. We have incredible talent in our program and put it to work at Booth.
We typically see around 500-600 submissions per month, or close to 20 per day. Of these we accept around 50 titles per year, or approximately 1%.
