SUBMISSIONS POLICY

Kregel Publications does not accept unsolicited material for review. We do, however, review summaries from The Writers' Edge and Christian Manuscript Submissions regularly. These manuscript-screening services provide an opportunity for you to share your proposal with over 40 Christian publishers simultaneously for a moderate fee. We also accept query letters from professional literary agents. A listing of agents is available in Sally Stuart's Christian Writers' Market Guide.

Please consider this list of resources as you seek publication:

They can also be contacted by email at info@writersedgeservice.com or mail at PO Box 1266, Wheaton, IL 60189. There is a fee for this service.
  • Christian Manuscripts Submissions—Located at www.christianmanuscriptsubmissions.com it is an opportunity to share your proposal with the member publishers of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. There is a fee for this service.

With a surge in unsolicited submissions in recent years and the relatively few works that have been published as a result of unsolicited material, Kregel has decided that these services provide the most efficient and helpful alternative to unsolicited mailings. Any submissions received from unknown sources will be returned to the sender unopened. If there is no return address, such packages will be discarded.
