Soho Press is not currently accepting unagented, unsolicited submissions for our Crime or YA lists.
We are open to unsolicited submissions for our literary list. Please familiarize yourself with the types of books we publish in the literary imprint “Soho Press” before submitting. In general, we are interested in bold voices and original ways of seeing the world.
Start by sending three chapters (or fifty pages) and a cover letter to Soho Press at 853 Broadway, New York, NY 10003, care of acquisitions editor. 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 us to respond to queries (though often we are much quicker). Please wait for six months to pass before checking on the status of your submission. Please note that we do not accept manuscript submissions via email.
Editorial Office (no orders—only editorial inquiries, please):
