is an independent press founded by author Hannah Cao based in Germany. She partners with other artists, writers and creatives to develop and carry out projects that push underrepresented voices and cultures forward.

Through the experiences of diverse cultures in her lifetime and those of her surrounding, it has become crucial for Hannah and her partners to continue to broaden their perception without confining themselves to single standard.

Please read the guidelines for a submission to In A Room Alone Press below before submitting.

︎Please don’t forget your name or nickname you would like me to use, your e-mail so I can reply, and your Instagram handle or other social media link.

︎Please submit your poems in one single document (doc, pages or pdf), but I need each poem on a separate page (add page breaks).

︎Send in your poems as text, not in a photo

︎Please do not send multiple separate submissions at the same time

︎There is no minimum or maximum word count.

︎You always keep your rights, you will always be free to post your piece somewhere else.

︎The same poet can appear in the Seasonal issues twice, but you can submit as much and often as you like to the themed anthologies.

︎If you don’t include a title to your piece, it will be given the title “Untitled”.

︎I will not change your piece without your permission. I will be proof-reading for grammar and spelling, and I will be changing American English to British English.

︎Please note that submissions are not guaranteed to be published. I will get in touch with you.

Please be advised I currently work by myself in this small press, and it will take time for me to get back to you, but sooner or later I definitely will be in touch.
