Publishing with Us
How can I submit my manuscript to Zondervan Academic to be published?
We currently accept unsolicited book proposals for college and seminary textbooks, reference books, and scholarly monographs in the biblical, theological, and related disciplines.
Please include the appropriate imprint, Zondervan Academic, in the subject line when submitting your proposal to ZAsubmissions@zondervan.com.
Your proposal must include:
- A brief description of the proposed book
- The unique contribution of the book and why you feel it must be published
- The table of contents, including a two or three sentence description of each chapter
- Your intended reader
- Your curriculum vita including your qualifications to write the book
The proposal should be no more than five pages. If we are interested, we will respond within six weeks. If you do not hear from us, you can assume that your proposal is not in line with our publishing goals at this time.
All other unsolicited submissions including fiction, poetry, devotionals, or illustrations are not accepted. Please click this link for information on how to have your book otherwise published.
Thank you for your interest in publishing with Zondervan Academic.
