About FP


Thank you for your interest in the Feminist Press. Please follow these simple submission guidelines:

Take a look at our catalog, website, and mission statement to see if your work would in any way fit into our publishing program. (Please note, we do not publish poetry, drama, doctoral dissertations, or literary criticism.)

We prefer to receive hard copies of submissions via snail mail. Please address submissions to:

Submissions Committee
The Feminist Press
365 Fifth Avenue, Suite 5406
New York, NY 10016

Be sure to include your proposal, a sample chapter, and a short writer bio, along with an email address in order to receive a reply to your submission. If you do not have an email address, include a SASE with your submission. Please note that we cannot return any of your materials; we will send you a reply letter in that SASE.

If you cannot mail your submission to us, you may email it to editor@feministpress.org

We appreciate your patience in awaiting a reply. Our small staff receives hundreds of submissions each month though we publish only fifteen to twenty books a year.

And as much as we would like to help, we are not able to offer advice on writing a book proposal nor can we suggest other publishers for your work.

Thank you again for your interest in the Feminist Press.
