Welcome!

This is the information side of our website. The format is meant to mirror the design of the MSR Online Bookstore.

Above you will find headers for the different categories. Some have drop downs that link to specific information about that subject.
For those looking for submission guidelines, everything we publish now has a separate page of streamlined guidelines. Writers are invited to explore the different categories for opportunities or sign up for notification of updates to the MSR Bulletin Board–which is one of the places where we list current needs and upcoming deadlines.

There is also a link to The MSR Online Bookstore where all Main Street Rag, Mint Hill Books, and Pure Heart Press titles are available along with those of associated publishers.

If you don’t find what you need, hit the contact tab for other options.
