At the moment we accept unsolicited manuscripts. We' re a Canadian female journalist who publishes literature of particular interest to the female public. We have a list of young readers' literature, non-fiction and literature. Manuscripts are sought that deal with the manifold and multifaceted issues of girls' and women's life as well as with the issues of societal equity, variety and child emancipation.
We strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with the previous publications of our work. Please submit your script according to the following directions if you think it matches our list. Are you an US writer or artist, you should consider mailing your work of art or your script to one of the many US publishers; we concentrate on Canadian writers (either citizen or resident Canadians).
There are seldom exemptions to this policy, which also applies to other internationally active writers and graphic designers. We do not release poems, anthropomorphic animal anthropomorphic poems, anthropomorphic animal anthropomorphic poems, romantic fiction, image rhymes or the like. Remember also that as a female journalist we are looking for non-sexist, non-racist and non-violent histories.
Entries | Coach House Books
Coaching House produces cutting-edge poems, fictional literature, dramas and selected non-fiction. No. We do not release children's literature, cookery literature, fantasies, historical novels, memoir, mysteries, sci-fi or self-help literature. Several hundred entries are received per year and we only take about ten. Please take the necessary amount of your submission to familiarise yourself with the titles on our list to ensure you are a good match.
Only Canadian writers are used. This is because most Canadian publishers, most of them Coach House included, are made survivable in part through subsidies from the federation and the provinces. Admission to these scholarships is conditional upon priority being given to the publishing of Canadian writers. We cannot release any book that has been previously released and provided with an ISBN (including ebooks), or that we ourselves release while it is being reviewed by Coach HouseBook.
We' ve found that presenting a book that's already on the shelves of the store is a big challenge for our sales and media work. In particular, we are encouraging members of various groups, among them tribal authors, color authors, disabled authors, LGBTQ authors and authors who relate to other marginalised groups.
To submit your literature, please submit your full script along with an introduction to your work, comparing it with at least two recent Coach House books that explain how your text would match our list, and a literature resume that lists your past releases and pertinent experiences. All of these should be included in one single document (Word or PDF).
To submit plays, please provide information on past and future plays in your introduction to the theatre. Please submit a short suggestion and a sketch together with your curriculum vitae for non-fiction entries, also for our explosion views. Unfortunately, we can only receive entries electronically. We' re not accepting any poems until further orders.
We kindly ask you to submit your manuscripts only once. Due to the amount of entries we are receiving, we cannot allow more than one entry (more than one paper at a time). In your covering note, please indicate whether your work is a concurrent entry (also filed with other publishers). Please inform us immediately if it is approved elsewhere.
We' re trying to answer quickly, but we've received several hundred entries, so it may take a few month for us to get back to you.
