Saraband: Now Accepting Nonfiction Submissions

Saraband is an independent publisher that was founded in 1994 in Norwalk, Connecticut. In 2000 they relocated to Glasgow, Scotland and they have since relocated to Manchester, England.

Their focus has always been on nature, history, art and the mind/body connection. On their website now, they divide their nonfiction into two categories, nature and culture. If you are considering submitting work to them, please spend time with their catalog to determine if your work would be a good fit.

They started publishing literary fiction in 2011 and have since branched out into more mainstream fiction (which they label as contraband on their website), but are not currently open to direct submissions of fiction.  They have won a number of awards over the years, and you can learn more about them here.

Their UK based distributor is Grantham Book Services (which is run by Penguin Random House Distribution. Outside of the UK they are represented by Consortium Book Group.

They are currently only open to non-fiction submissions and they ask that you send via email “your book description, table of contents and a sample chapter together with a brief CV relevant to your writing”.

You can see their short submission guidelines and email address near the bottom of this page.
