Prospective Author Guidelines

Before submitting a manuscript proposal to us, please look through our catalogs and review the acquisitions areas of our editors. Note that we do not publish unsolicited original fiction or poetry, with the exception of some Latin American and Middle Eastern literature in translation.

Submissions should include a cover letter, a proposal, table of contents, sample chapter, and your C.V. We prefer that all submissions be accompanied by our Author and Manuscript Inquiry Form [ PDF icon .pdf | Microsoft Office document icon .doc ]. Please do not email a full manuscript.

If you would like your materials to be returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope large enough to hold them. Otherwise, your materials will be recycled. Please do not send irreplaceable materials or original illustrations.

We make every effort to respond to submissions in a timely manner; our typical turnaround time is about a month.
