Submit Your Manuscript

Author Guidelines

It is important that you read and understand our Author Guidelines in full. They explain the format in which we expect to receive your manuscript before an editor starts work on it (if we offer you a publishing deal). 

Sacristy Press welcomes submissions from talented authors.

Would you like to join our rapidly expanding family of authors? At Sacristy Press we firmly believe that the best books are collaborations between dedicated authors and dedicated publishers. Together we can make it happen.

If you would like us to consider your work, please send us the following:

  • A one-page covering letter outlining the project
  • At least one sample chapter or section of your book (the more you can send us the better), with each chapter in a separate file
  • Your CV (max. 2 pages)
  • A completed project proposal form (compatible with Word 2003 or higher, or you can download a version compatible with older versions of MS Word and OpenOffice)
  • Acknowledgement that you have read our Author Guidelines in full, and that you are willing to undertake the necessary work to modify your manuscript so that it complies with the guidelines if it is accepted for publication

Send these documents as separate attachments by email to submissions@sacristy.co.uk, with the subject line “Submission: [Your Book Title]”. If it is necessary to send any physical materials by post, please indicate this clearly in your covering letter and we will provide instructions.

We will contact you to confirm receipt within two weeks. Due to the quantity of submissions we receive, it is not possible to indicate how long it may take to review your manuscript – it may take several weeks (or longer) to respond to your submission.

Never miss a beat.
