Call for Manuscript Submissions

Calumet Editions
July 9, 2019

Calumet Editions, which publishes 20-25 books a year, is now accepting submissions for books published under its unique Author Partnership Program. We seek to break the cycle of serial rejection for authors and create a realistic option for them to develop careers in mainstream publishing, while at the same time avoiding the growing black hole of self-publishing.

We adopt a hybrid approach, meaning authors invest 50% of expenses after undergoing a traditional acquisition and publishing process. Please examine to learn more about our Author Partnership Program.

Submissions must include a one-page cover letter (describing the book, its author, its genre, and how the author would be willing to go about promoting to a specified audience), accompanied by a double-spaced 15-25 page writing sample. Submissions can be sent to and are reviewed on a first-come first-served basis.
