2023 Call for Submissions

Open May 1-July 31, 2023

Hidden Timber Books is looking for literary fiction or memoir (in a collection or as a whole). We would also love to read your middle grade novel. We are a small press with a very small crew, so we love finished manuscripts that have been well-worked and revised. We find that the best manuscripts come from writers who have spent time in community with other writers in group critique or with outside editors.

Please submit:

  1. your query letter
  2. a one-page synopsis
  3. the first 50 pages of your manuscript (double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font). 

In your letter, please include:

  1. your contact information
  2. the title of your book and word count
  3. website (if you have one) & social media links
  4. why you chose to submit to Hidden Timber Books.

Any incomplete submissions or submissions not following these guidelines will be automatically declined.

(We may close submissions early if we reach our capacity.)
