We at Underwood Press have a love for finely crafted storytelling.

We also have a weakness for Cowboy poetry.  And western movies and great western tales.

There is something special about sitting down around a campfire at the end of a long day, lighting a hand-rolled cigarette, drinking coffee from a tin cup and watching the sparks rise up and join the stars.


We're suckers for Cowboy poetry.  And stories. 

Send us your best.

If we love it, we will want to publish it and so share it with the world.

We are looking for work that has not been previously published.  Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please let us know immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere and remove it from our submission list.

Please understand that True Chili is an electronic publication and is part of Underwood Press LLC.

If we agree to publish your work, you agree to give us first electronic publishing rights and non-exclusive rights for the full term of the copyright. This means that we can keep and display your work in our electronic archives indefinitely.  All other rights revert to the author upon publication.

If we wish to use your work in a later anthology (print or electronic) or record it for one of our podcasts, we will ask for separate permission before doing so.

Please credit Underwood Press and/or True Chili as the first publisher if you reprint elsewhere.

Please understand that we may make small editorial changes in the work. These will not usually go beyond correcting typos or grammatical errors. For any substantive change, we will contact the author.
