Manuscript Submission Information
The Peasantry Press general submission period is now closed. Our next submission period will run July 1, 2018 - July 31, 2018
Our general submission process is as follows:
We will confirm that we have received your submission within one week. If you don't hear from us, please resubmit it.
Our submission review and response period usually ranges from 4 - 16 weeks. All submissions will eventually receive a reply. However, we cannot offer individual feedback for every manuscript. Please keep in mind that we receive a high number of submissions each period and we publish very few titles per year. If your manuscript is not a match for Peasantry Press at this time, it may be a perfect fit elsewhere.
We are looking for highly polished, unpublished novellas and novels in a number of genres, including (but not limited to) adventure, drama, historical fiction, inspirational fiction, mystery, sweet romance, science fiction of all types, urban fantasy, fairytale, young adult, completed graphic novels. Manuscripts must be 40,000 – 120,000 words.
Peasantry Press publishes in the "clean" works category, which means that we do not publish books with overt sexuality, adult language, or graphic violence.
Note: Submission date and genre restrictions do not apply if:
- you met one of our editors and he/she invited you to submit a manuscript
- your manuscript fits one of our three "wishlist" descriptions. See our News Blog for wishlist details.
Payments and Support
Peasantry Press is an independent, royalty-paying publisher located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. While we don't currently offer an advance, we pay fair, quarterly royalties. Contracts generally run 5 years.
Peasantry Press focuses on the ebook market, but will assist in marketing our writers’ books, through initial give-aways, press releases, online ads, and direct-sales vendor events. However, in order for a book to be successful, writers are expected to be highly active in their own marketing as well, through a variety of means (social media, blogs, local book launches and local bookstore contacts, signings, word-of-mouth, etc.).
Although Peasantry Press is located in Canada, we work with both local and international authors. We believe it's a global bookstore: we sell worldwide.
