How to Submit a Manuscript

Manuscripts (complete only) should be directed to ‘The Editor’ at our Brooklyn office (see our Contact page) and be sent with a self-addressed stamped envelope, a resume, relevant marketing information, and any other material that you feel would be useful in helping us understand the book’s content market and potential. We will also happily receive this information via email.

For more information on submitting nonfiction book proposals to an editor, we recommend Thinking Like Your Editor by Susan Rabiner and Alfred Fortunato (Norton 2002). For more information on publishing, we recommend the slightly dated but still relevant So Many Books by Gabriel Zaid (Paul Dry Books 2003) and Seth Godin’s extremely pungent Advice for Authors. For information on self-publishing, we recommend the advice of the ever-reliable Jane Friedman.
