Editorial Focus

BPP admires authors who challenge our perspectives, or who offer less-common inroads to the most compelling subjects of our time. But we only accept submissions that fit within our company's mission, which is: to engage readers on topics of contemporary culture through quality writing and thoughtful design. Unbound by genre, our press strives to deliver socially relevant works that advise, guide, inspire and amuse. We champion authors with new perspectives, strong voices and original ideas that just might change the world.

Tips From the Editor

Please read our mission carefully before you query or submit. Your proposal needs to be substantive, well thought-out, and complete. We may be small, but our standards aren't. Just because your work may align with our mission does not mean we will publish it; we are extremely selective and consider numerous factors in taking on a new title.
