HOW TO SUBMIT A PROJECT
To inquire about potential interest in your project, you may submit a brief e-mail query of 1-3 paragraphs describing your project, or you may proceed directly to a proposal. Do not submit a whole manuscript unless an editor invites it.
If someone has referred you to the University of Wisconsin Press, or if you are approaching our editors as a follow-up to a conversation with our staff at a conference or other event, please be sure to mention this connection in your first contact with us.
The Review Process
Once we receive your materials, we will review them carefully. If your project is a good fit for our list, we will notify you of our interest and request any additional materials.
Owing to the sheer volume of proposals we receive, it may take up to four months for us to respond. During the waiting period, our editors do not accept phone queries regarding the status of your proposal, but please feel free to send a follow-up query via email.
