Independent Publishing Bringing the human back into humanity
Submissions to Parvati Press
Parvati Press is an independent press with a vision of quality books in both print and eBook formats. These books are often metaphysical, playful, serious, and thought provoking; they will enrich your life.
This Press has a specific mission that can be summed up as bringing the human back into humanity. We are passionately engaged in the process of bringing to publication books that will enrich and enhance readers’ lives. Books are the keepers of Soul, and this Press carries that flame with joy!
In fiction, our focus is on strong storytelling and distinctive voices; in nonfiction, we look for photograph-rich art books, as well as poetry, historical, spiritual, and cultural books.
If you are interested in submitting to Parvati Press, please read our mission statement carefully to determine if your material is a good fit for our stated objectives. Note: Parvati Press believes firmly in the process of revision, which can be stringent. If you are not willing to undergo this process, perhaps multiple times, then please do not submit your work.
If you are a good fit for our objectives, and if you are willing to revise as often as is necessary, then submit a query letter to submissions [at] parvatipress.com. Include “manuscript query” in the subject line. Please do not send a full manuscript nor your only copy of the manuscript. Someone from the Press will respond to your query if your material is felt to be a good fit for the Press.
To submit a short story for READING THE WORLD: SHORT STORIES TO SUPPORT GLOBAL LITERACY, please include the first 500 words of the story in the body of the email, and please include “short story submission” in the subject line.
