Prospective Authors

Interested in publishing with Baylor University Press?

At Baylor University Press, the bar for acquisitions is set high. The process is rigorous. Because of this, it is best to contact us first, before preparing and submitting a full manuscript proposal. An early email to the acquisitions team will yield a timely response indicating the Press’ interest. After this initial exchange, we will ask for additional materials to pursue the publication of your work.

The acquisitions process is different at every press. At Baylor University Press, we hope to be as direct as possible so that scholars can determine whether or not we are the best fit for your work.

For information on how that process works at Baylor University Press, see our Guidelines and Process information.

If you are interested in submitting a manuscript for consideration, read our Proposal Requirements. However, we strongly urge you to contact us directly before submitting a formal proposal.
