Soho Press wants literary novel queries

Posted on August 30, 2016


soho-pressSoho Press is open to unsolicited submissions for their literary list. Please familiarize yourself with the types of books we publish in the literary imprint “Soho Press” before submitting. In general, they are interested in bold voices and original ways of seeing the world.

Query first. Send three chapters (or fifty pages) and a cover letter to:
Soho Press, Inc.
853 Broadway
New York, NY 10003

Please accompany all submissions and queries with postage and packing materials for their return. It’s not advised to send a query letter without sample pages—without seeing the actual writing, it’s hard to get enthusiastic about a book.

Because of the volume of submissions, it can take three to six months for an editor to respond to queries (though often much quicker). Please wait for six months to pass before checking on the status of your submission.

Do not send queries or manuscript submissions via email.

Soho Press is not currently accepting unagented, unsolicited submissions for our Crime or YA lists.
