Academic Resources/Desk & Examination Copy Requests
Bellevue Literary Press publishes literary fiction and narrative nonfiction geared toward a general readership. We do not publish poetry, single short stories, plays, screenplays, memoir, or self-help/instructional books. If you are unsure whether your manuscript would be a good fit for our list, you may send a query email, using the same subject line as for a submission.
- E-mail all submissions to [email protected] with the subject line in this format: TITLE OF MANUSCRIPT — AUTHOR’S LAST NAME — MM/DD/YY
- In the body of your e-mail, please include a comprehensive cover letter with a description of your manuscript and biographical information.
- For fiction submissions, please attach the full manuscript. Excerpts will not be accepted.
- For nonfiction submissions, you may attach the full manuscript or a formal proposal. A synopsis is recommended but not required.
If your submission meets our guidelines, we will be in touch as soon as we reach a decision. We handle a backlog of submissions with a very small staff, so this may take some time and follow-up messages will only delay the reviewing process. Please respond to our confirmation message only if you wish to withdraw your submission or have a competing offer to advise us of, and do not resubmit your query to the submissions address. Though we look forward to reviewing your submission, we are unable to respond to any communication regarding your manuscript that doesn’t conform to these guidelines.

Interested in learning more about the publishing industry? Bellevue Literary Press is looking for interns to join our office on a part-time basis. BLP interns read and appraise manuscripts, manage our online submissions log, attend staff meetings, and assist us with a variety of office tasks. It’s a great way to gain hands-on experience and insight into the inner workings of a publishing office, the mechanisms of the book industry and marketplace, and the operations of a nonprofit arts organization.
The ideal applicant is detail-oriented and organized with excellent writing and communication skills as well as a strong interest in publishing and/or the nonprofit arts sector.
We are no longer accepting applications for fall 2018 internships. The application period for spring 2019 internships opens December 3rd, 2018. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to Elana Rosenthal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
