We are interested in manuscripts that are accessible to a wide range of progressive and radical political activists, while also being useful to an academic audience.
Please note that we are not accepting submissions for the following genres at this time: fiction, poetry, memoirs, cookbooks, self-help, or dissertations.
In order to get a sense of the kinds of works we usually publish, please browse our catalog at www.haymarketbooks.org.
If your project falls within the guidelines of the work we publish, please submit your proposal via our online submission site here: https://haymarketbooks.submittable.com/submit/143355/general-submissions-form
You will need:
• a cover letter explaining your proposed topic and its relevance to our audience
• a TOC and outline of the book, and 2 (maximum) sample chapters
• a brief annotated list of the existing literature on the topic and the political work your book would perform
• a timeline for completion of the manuscript
• a CV/resume
Given the overwhelming number of manuscripts we receive, we cannot reply to all or even most submissions.
If we find that your project fits within our current editorial priorities, we will contact you within four months of your submission.
If you are an agent, you may email your proposal to [email protected]
Un-agented submissions received by email will not be considered.
Submissions sent by postal mail will not be acknowledged or returned.
