Submission Guidelines

Due to a lengthy backlog of submissions, we unfortunately can no longer consider unsolicited submissions year-round. Instead, we will be offering an open reading period later this year. We will post the opening date and instructions here soon. In the meantime, please do not submit queries or manuscripts to Erika or Elana unless you have a direct reference; we regret that we will not be able to consider these messages.

If you sent a submission to our submissions inbox before 5 p.m. EST on January 28, 2019, we will still consider it for publication and will be in touch as soon as we reach a decision. We handle hundreds 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.

Internships

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 spring 2019 internships. The application period for summer 2019 internships opens March 15th, 2019. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to Elana Rosenthal at elana@blpress.org.
