Manuscripts Must Be:

  • Big Muddy is dedicated to reviewing full-length of any genre books from independent, university, and small presses.
  • Reviews should be double-spaced pages (approximately 300-500 words).
  • Reviews should be over books published within the last two years. 
  • All documentation should be in appropriate style for your field.
  • We prefer only a minimum of summary. Your educated, supported opinion is most valuable to the review.
  • Reviewers are sent one copy of the issue in which their review is published. The review becomes the property of Southeast Missouri State University Press.
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
