For our next project, we are looking for literary fiction or narrative nonfiction in the form of a novel, a memoir, or a collection (short stories, essays, or hybrid).
We are a small press with a very small crew, so we love finished manuscripts that have been well-worked and revised. We find that the best manuscripts come from writers who have spent time in community with other writers in group critique or with outside editors.
Submissions will open September 1st and close November 30th. Please send us your query letter, a one-page synopsis, and the first 25 pages of your manuscript (double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font) via Submittable.
In your query letter, please include:
- Contact information
- Website, if you have one, and any social media links
- Title of your book
- Genre and word count
- Why you chose to submit to Hidden Timber Books
We can’t wait to read your work! #YourStoryMatters
