Preparing Your Prospectus
Download and read the Book Prospectus Guidelines.
Past experience has shown that a book prospectus is the best way for Prufrock’s staff to review an author’s idea for a new publication. For this reason, Prufrock Press does not consider unsolicited manuscripts. The Book Prospectus Guidelines offer clear instructions for developing a prospectus for Prufrock. Please follow these guidelines carefully before submitting your prospectus to Prufrock.
Submitting Your Prospectus
We accept book prospectuses through Submittable, an online submission service. We look forward to reading your work.
Important: Please note that mailed and e-mailed submissions are not accepted. Specific submission instructions are provided in the Book Prospectus Guidelines. No phone calls please! We will not be able to tell you over the phone if your book will be considered for acceptance.
