Call for Submissions: Books

Ashland Creek Press is currently accepting submissions of book-length fiction and nonfiction on the themes of the environment, animal protection, ecology, and wildlife — above all, we’re looking for exceptional, well-written, engaging stories.

As you'll see from our current and forthcoming titles, we are open to many genres (young adult, mystery, literary fiction) as long as the stories are relevant to the themes listed above. Please note that at this time, we are not reading submissions for children's books or for poetry.

For all submissions, please include (in a single document) a 1-2 page synopsis of the entire manuscript (including word count), the first 50 pages, and an author bio listing all publishing credits, awards, and experience. Include a valid e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number.

We will be open for book submissions until June 1, 2017.

All submissions must be made using Submittable. Literary agents are welcome to send queries by e-mail.

Please note that we are unable to respond to phone calls or unsolicited e-mail submissions.

The Fine Print

Ashland Creek Press accepts no responsibility for lost or misplaced submissions. We will get back to you with a reply as soon as possible, but please know that it can take up to several months.

Ashland Creek Press is a boutique press with the goal of publishing books of high quality that often have trouble finding homes in traditional markets. We work with authors who are passionate about their work and about getting it out into the world.

Our mission

Ashland Creek Press is an independent, vegan-owned publisher of ecofiction, which includes books in all genres about animals, the environment, and the planet we all call home. We are passionate about books that foster an appreciation for worlds outside our own, for nature and the animal kingdom, and for the ways in which we all connect.
