We are closed for submissions at this time.
Please bookmark this page for updates on our next call.
We love 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.
When submissions open again, please be prepared to send us a query letter, a short synopsis, and the first 50 pages of your manuscript.
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
