For scholars and students, we publish reference and course books in the areas of archaeology, American studies, American history, literary studies, theatre studies, and the craft of writing.

For general readers, we publish the winners of the Iowa Short Fiction Award, the Iowa Poetry Prize, and the Iowa Prize in Literary Nonfiction, books on the archaeology and natural history of the Midwest, cookbooks, letters and diaries, biographies, memoirs, regional history, and collections of historic and contemporary photographs.

We prefer all proposals and manuscript materials to be double-spaced and in Word or pdf format. Please email your material to the appropriate acquisitions or series editor. Our typical response time for a preliminary inquiry is about 5 to 6 weeks.
