Submission Guidelines

Right now DopeReads is interested reviewing Multicultural Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Contemporary Fiction, LGBTQ Fiction, and Memoir. We are open to other genres if the work is DOPE (read: well-written and engaging). Interested in submitting a book or other literary work for review? Here’s how:

  • Shoot an email to DopeReads (at) Gmail (dot) com. Please include a brief write up about the author, the title of the work, event details, etc.
  • Please note that while literary works may be supplied by publishers or authors, all opinions are solely those of DopeReads editors.
  • It is up to the discretion of the DopeReads editors which books are featured.
  • If you piece is selected, a review will be posted within 2-4 weeks of receipt of the book.

If you are interested in partnering with DopeReads for an author event in the DC area, please send an email to: DopeReads (at) Gmail (dot) com. Thanks!

    About

    DopeReads is a DC Metro-based multicultural book blog that focuses on fiction, non-fiction and other literary works by writers of color, women writers, LGBTQ writers, and dope writers. We host author events from time to time, but mostly, we just love to rap about books.

    1. Maybe you can help. I am trying to boost my blog a little, but I am new to the game. First question, if you don’t mind, did you “purchase” web page for this blog or are you using wordpress.org instead of .com?
      Thank ya!

      • Hey Jamii! Thanks for the blog love. Yes, I did purchase a domain name, but I got it thru wordpress. The best blogging advice I got when I started was: have good content, and be consistent. Thats the only real way to build a base. Good luck :)
