MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION

Fordham University Press publishes scholarly books in the humanities and social sciences, as well as books of interest to the general public. Its list emphasizes American studies, anthropology, critical race theory, cultural studies, education, gender studies, history, literary studies, media and communications, Medieval studies, philosophy, political theory, religion, sociology, theology, and urban studies. The Press publishes work about New York City and the Hudson Valley under its Empire State Editions imprint.

The Press welcomes book proposals in the fields in which we generally publish.  We do not publish fiction, and we do not publish poetry except in the Poets Out Loud series.  Details on how to submit to Poets Out Loud can be found here; submissions should not be sent to the Press.

We recommend that submissions include the following:

  • a cover letter outlining the book's argument, its contribution to scholarship, and its fit with our list
  • a current curriculum vitae
  • a prospectus (5-10 pp), giving a detailed outline of the book and addressing its target audience, competing works, anticipated completion date, anticipated word count (including notes and bibliography), and any art or graphics requirements.
  • contributor bios (edited volumes only)
  • a sample chapter (optional)

Do not send complete manuscripts unless you have been asked to do so.

Proposals may be sent by email or hard copy to the appropriate editor from the list below.  Submit to one editor only; if necessary the proposal can be passed along to a more appropriate editor.

Hard copies can be sent to:

Fordham University Press
Joseph A. Martino Hall
45 Columbus Avenue, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10023

We will attempt to respond within eight weeks.
