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 (Please note, we only accept completed manuscripts, and do not publish poetry, drama, doctoral dissertations, or literary criticism.)

Be sure to include a synopsis of your work, three sample chapters (or at least 50 pages), a short author bio, and a brief marketing plan, along with any relevant contact information 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. 

We accept digital and hard copy submissions, but prefer digital. You can email your proposal as a PDF attachment to or address it to: 

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

We appreciate your patience in awaiting a reply. Our small staff receives hundreds of submissions each season though we publish only fifteen 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.
