Dragonfly Library



We welcome submissions of all green reads–nonfiction, fiction, poetry & prose, graphic novel, and short story excerpts. You may also submit nature writing in the forms of articles and essays. Submissions must have a few notability requirements, including:

  • All samples should be well-written, grammatically sound, and interesting.
  • Book (excerpt) submissions must have good reviews and ratings in Amazon or Goodreads, favorable reviews in the press, or be written by an already a notable author; the book does not have to be published yet if it meets these qualifications.
  • Short story and essay excerpts from anthologies, personal writing, blog posts, etc., are also accepted.
  • All submissions must have a strong environmental/nature focus.

Please send us the following details:

  • Cover image of the book cover; licensed-for-use concept art for non-books is also allowed
  • Permission to publish an excerpt (from the author if self-published or from the publisher that holds printing rights)
  • Time allowed to have on site (can be indefinite)
  • Link for ordering the book
  • Book title and author’s name or pen name
  • Publication date
  • Extract in Word format (no longer than 10 manuscript pages for full-length works, 3 poems for poetry books, and 2 manuscript pages for short stories)
  • Author links (social media, blog, book page, press, etc.)

This service is a voluntary effort to raise awareness of nature and environmental themes in literature. This service costs nothing to authors and is not supported by ad revenue. We do appreciate links back to the site, which helps raise awareness of this service.
