Big Changes to 805

We have big news for the future of 805 Lit + Art. After being published by Manatee Libraries (and funded by the Friends of the Central Library) for almost eight years, 805 will be published by the Manatee Literary Society starting March 1, 2022.


We’re grateful for the past and present support of the library, our writers, and our readers. We’ll take a short break from publishing our weekly content and resume publishing the best debut and emerging creators in the spring. In the meantime, enjoy our back issues, and stay tuned for the Braden River Library’s teen poetry issue launch in April.


Submissions of short stories, poetry, and essays are temporarily paused while we transition to our new publisher. We’re still open to art and posts for our My Home Library series. Submit here.
