Gate37 is a publishing house for people who find the question “Where are you from?” hard to answer. It’s a place to belong for those who don’t belong anywhere. We’re looking for writers who are Third Culture Kids, fraught with the thoughts that come with a cross-cultural background.

Style and Subject.

We publish fiction and nonfiction. We’re not really strict on what we read at the moment, given that we’re new and all. That might change when we’re collapsing under the weight of pdf files. For now, if you identify as a cross-cultural or Third Culture Kid author, get in touch. Even if you’ve never published before, and don’t think you’re that good, odds are if you’re on this page you probably have a story to tell.

Response Time.

We take a couple of months to read a manuscript and get back to you.

Word Count.

We don’t really mind, since we want everything from short stories to novels to works of non-fiction about the migration pattern of the Emperor Penguin (not really). Try to keep it under 7 figures. Seriously, we once got a million word manuscript. That one hurt.
