Welcome to Choeofpleirn Press!
Our name is pronounced chuf-plern and roughly means "the chief place of rest," but it is a word we coined by alternating the letters of our surnames.
We are a literary press located in northeastern Kansas at the foot of the Glacial Hills.
Remember, if you choose to enter our creative contests, you must pay the appropriate contest fees as indicated on the specific genre's webpage through the payment portal at the bottom of that page.
If you have questions about submitting to our journals, please email us at ChoeofpleirnPress@gmail.com.
If you have not heard back from us within 48 hours of your submission, you need to contact us to ensure that we have gotten your work because sometimes submissions are sent to Spam, and we can inadvertently overlook or accidently delete a submission within the Spam folder.

Choeofpleirn Press embraces diversity because diversity strengthens humanity’s ability to deal with the issues facing us. The editors have worked in intercultural fields in higher education previously, so understand the importance of meeting diverse readers' needs through accepting brilliant works of literature and art by writers of diverse backgrounds and experiences.
As writers, the editors of Choeofpleirn Press realize how challenging it can be to get individual works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, one-act plays, and screenplays published, so we decided to create separate literary magazines that highlight each of the longer genres--fiction, nonfiction, and drama--in combination with art and poetry, in order to promote those works more effectively. We create coffee table quality print magazines, sold as print-on-demand books through Amazon and as ebooks through our website, that are boldly colorful, unlike most traditional literary magazines, to invite readers into the stories, poetry, and drama through dramatic art work images.
