The email didn't mention anything about a reading fee (unless I totally missed it), which makes me think they must have just forgotten to mention it. I keep looking at their website but they haven't updated it about this yet.

If there really is no reading fee, I may have to get my shit together and put together a manuscript... hm.

(Because, you know, I like collecting various and sundry rejection slips. *grin*)

Unfortunately, quite a hefty reading fee - from the site's Open Submissions Guidelines page:

"Include a reading fee of $35.00 for poetry, $45 for fiction, payable to Tupelo Press. Why a reading fee? We are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) literary press. No editor receives compensation of any kind. Reading fees in this amount contribute to the cost of publishing books of fiction or poetry outside of our competitions. Please be thoughtful about whether your manuscript is fully ready for publication."
