Open Books Press is currently closed to submissions in order to work through our backlog.

Please subscribe to our email list to be notified when we reopen, or simply check back later.

If you'll be at either of the following conferences, you can pitch to us in person! This is the only way we'll be accepting unsolicited submissions until we reopen.


Open Books Press is dedicated to publishing quality books. When we're open for submissions, we accept adult nonfiction, and fiction for all ages (including some YA and children's). All authors with exceptional work will be given serious consideration.
