Editorial Focus

Waywiser publishes literary works by new and established authors, and is also interested in restoring the reputations of writers overlooked or suffering undue neglect.

Tips From the Editor

Please read our guidelines carefully, especially in regards to submission times, which are different for works of prose and works of poetry. It is also a good idea to look at our backlist, to get a sense of the sort of book we are interested in.
