Do you have a story you’d like to publish? Are you curious about how to publish a book?

Sutherland House is accepting new non-fiction proposals and manuscripts from anyone with an exciting story to tell. We are interested in narrative history, memoir, biography, business, journalism, and cultural studies, as well as general non-fiction subjects, from works of political thought to social commentary to sports stories to academic pieces that are written for a general audience.

We invite authors, both unpublished and experienced, to submit their work to us – representation by an agent is not required!

Please send your proposal (or manuscript, if you have a draft that is ready to be read) to Matt Bucemi, Managing Editor, at along with a brief introduction and a few words about your topic. We aim to get back to you within 3 to 4 weeks. If you would like to submit a physical manuscript, you can find our mailing address below; however, due to the high number of submissions, please know that we will not be able to return any physical documents that you send to us. We’re happy to hear from you!
