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.

In a number of subject areas, our acquisitions editors work closely with academic series editors in evaluating and developing projects. If your project fits one of our series, please begin with an e-mail query addressed simultaneously to both the series editor(s) and the acquisitions editor, as indicated below.

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.

 

What to expect in response

Please note that we receive thousands of queries and proposals per year. Regretfully, we are unable to respond to all queries and unsolicited proposals, though we generally do respond in a timely manner to those that may be a good fit for our list. However, if you believe that your project is a good fit for our list, and we have not responded within several weeks, please feel free to send a follow-up query.
