Editorial Focus

Gibson House Press is a traditional independent publisher of literary fiction. We publish excellent novels written by working musicians and musicians at heart (thought the subject matter is not limited to music themes). Writers are invited to submit complete full-length novel manuscripts (50-80,000-word range). 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. 

Tips From the Editor

Please submit your complete manuscript (50-80K words), bio, and cover letter here:

We prefer your manuscript in Word, doublespaced, one-inch margins, page numbers centered at bottom of page, "normal" formatting, single space after periods.

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 within six months.
