Inspired by the industry term, “the slush pile” (where unsolicited manuscripts are set aside), PUBSLUSH Press is a full service, publishing platform that utilizes social media to bring together writers and readers, providing an innovative forum for discovering new writing talent. Writers upload a sample of their work and Slushers (registered users) review, share, and fund their favorite submissions. Once the required funding is achieved, PUBSLUSH facilitates the complete publishing process – or a deal is a made with another publisher prior to that. Additionally, for every book sold through PUBSLUSH and its distribution partners, a book will be donated to support children’s literacy. For more information about PUBSLUSH and the cause, please visit
