We welcome proposals for manuscript publication on a year round basis. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please consult our submission guidelines.

As a result of the high volume of submissions received, Atropos is unable to acknowledge each and every proposal, however, we encourage you to send us your manuscript ideas and appreciate your interest and contributions.

EGS Press.

EGS Press is an independent publishing company located in Toronto, Canada. EGS Press has been in operation since 1998, when it became clear that the European Graduate School in Switzerland would benefit from a forum in which to publish material emerging from its work in the fields of media, the arts and therapy. EGS Press aims to publish works of substantial quality in Expressive Arts: Therapy, Education, Consulting and associated areas.

In addition to books, EGS Press publishes a yearly journal, POIESIS: A Journal of the Arts and Communication, containing essays, poetry and works of visual art.

POIESIS: A Journal of the Arts and Communication.

Excerpts should be between 300 and 500 words and be accompanied by an approximately 200-word overview of the themes and content explored in the article. Proposals should be between 300 and 500 words, describing the theme, content, discourse: the how and why of the article, as well as length.
