Work With Us

Gibson House Press seeks fiction manuscripts for our 2023 list.

A traditional press based in Chicago and Colorado, Gibson House Press publishes literary fiction. Writers are invited to submit complete full-length-novel manuscripts (in the range of 60,000 to 80,000 words). Please provide a brief bio and include a synopsis of your novel in your cover letter. We’d love to hear how you heard about us. We especially love writers who are also musicians and music fans.

Please submit your complete manuscript, bio, and cover letter using this form.

SUBMISSION PROCESS and TIMELINE: We have year-round open submissions. If we are interested in acquiring your novel to publish, you will hear from us in six to nine months.
