DISCLAIMER: Do not pay or release sensitive financial details to any organizer/recruiter unless futher verified from your end.
You submit your manuscript, wait for a period of time hoping for a positive response. Although the fact that the cons sometimes outweighs the pros using time, inadequate marketing or difficult access as a benchmark cannot be undermined, yet it sometimes becomes the way out for many authors with weak financial strength.
The list below as compiled by ACEworld contains, in no particular order, 9 literary houses that provides free book publishing for authors.
Narrative magazine

Narrative is a non-profit organization with the ambition of encouraging good literary work. They do not charge readers for the magazine. However, for unsolicited submissions, they do charge a nominal fee, which helps cover the basic administrative costs related to receiving, reading, and responding to submissions. Also, a portion of the reading fee helps fund their annual Narrative Prize. Their desire is to connect readers and writers, and they strongly encourage anyone interested in submitting work to read the magazine before submitting. You may read the magazine for free. They are strongly committed to publishing debut and emerging writers, and those writers account for a third of the three to four hundred works we publish each year.

Remember that our readers live in a multicultural, diverse society and that our magazines reflect this. Our readers are exploring their identities and appreciate insights into the world around them. What works best? Energetic and accessible writing that has suspense, wit, fast-paced action, twists, credible characters and, always, the child reader at its heart.
