BookLand Press publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and Indigenous literature. We are particularly interested in submissions from culturally diverse Canadian authors, Indigenous authors, people with disabilities, and official language minority authors. All manuscripts submitted must be copies only. Please do not mail originals, as we will recycle all manuscripts we choose not to publish. Manuscripts must be typewritten and double-spaced. Each submission must be accompanied by a cover letter, a brief literary resume, and a synopsis.
Please provide your name, address, email and telephone number on the title page, as well as the word count of your work. Print your name on every page of the manuscript. Please send complete manuscripts or, if this is not possible, a minimum of 4 chapters.
No editorial comments will be forthcoming unless BookLand Press feels that a manuscript is publishable. Simultaneous submissions will be accepted, on the condition that it is clearly stated in the cover letter that another publisher is considering your work. Multiple submissions of up to three manuscripts are welcome.
We welcome electronic submissions via email. If submitting electronically, please email a Word file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you choose to submit by post, please mail submissions to:
BookLand Press Inc., 15 Allstate Parkway, Suite 600, Markham, Ontario L3R 5B4.
Please note that BookLand Press does not respond to queries about the status of unsolicited manuscripts. We apologize for this. We will contact you only if we wish to publish your manuscript. Please be assured that we read and consider each suitable submission we receive.
