Publishing Submissions

Creators Publishing accepts submissions in rolling periods throughout the year to ensure each manuscript receives the attention it deserves.

Currently, we are not accepting unsolicited submissions.

We hope to open things back up soon, so please check again in two to three months. As always, thank you for your interest and support.

Please allow 3-5 months for editorial review. We appreciate your patience during this time, as we extensively pour over each manuscript and thoroughly discuss each submission. Phone calls, emails, social media posts and letters of inquiry will not speed up the process.

All manuscript submissions for Creators Publishing MUST follow the guidelines below for consideration.
  • Please submit completed manuscripts only—no excerpts, samples, proposals.
  • We do not accept poetry compilations, children’s picture books or comic books.
  • Please submit a double-spaced Word Doc with numbered pages.
