Allworth Press publishes non-fiction. Here’s what they’re looking for in a book.
They are open to receiving submissions for proposed books in the following categories:
- Graphic Design
- Performing Arts
- Interior Design
- Web Design
- Book Arts
Before submitting a proposal, click around their site and take a look at the kinds of books they publish.
A strong book proposal consists of a brief query (cover) letter, a one-to-two-page synopsis, an annotated chapter outline, a market analysis (including competitive research), a sample chapter or two, your curriculum vitae (bio) including a list of all previous publishing credits, and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
If interested in seeing more than the first 50 pages, they will contact you and request the balance of the manuscript. Therefore, please refrain from submitting unfinished novels.
Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. If interested, they will get back to you within 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, we will not be able to get back to everyone, as we receive thousands of submissions.
