Open to Memoirs: Ravenrock Publishing

Post date: 15 April 2011
Ravenrock is now seeking submissions for our Fiction Line and our Sports Non-Fiction Line. Please send a query today!

Lifelong learning memoirs & Non Fiction

In education, we teach our students to become “lifelong learners”. What does this mean exactly? To Ravenrock this means that you’ve taken opportunities throughout your life to learn new things. Whether you are a teen, young adult, adult, or senior, if you have or are learning a new skill that has led you to some interesting stories, we want to hear about them. These books are not necessarily “how to” books, but books that chronicle your journey and change (whether life changing or simply life enhancing) while learning something new.

Ravenrock Publishing is interested in non-fiction work that describes, instructs, enhances, or informs readers. Whether you’ve written a delightful cookbook or golf instruction book, or amazing family or personal history story, we are interested in seeing what will fit in our line.

How to submit your work to Ravenrock Publishing Company:

Acquisition only

Ravenrock Publishing is an acquisition-only publishing company. We do not have a self-publishing line. All titles are reviewed and approved by our team and published in the appropriate genre.

To query

Please submit a one-page cover letter with one page synopsis as an attachment via email to info@ravenrockpublishing.com or by regular mail post (please request mailing address via email). Do not submit completed manuscripts.

Microsoft word .doc or docx or Adobe PDF, 1 inch margins on all sides, double space, Times, Courier, or Times New Roman 12 pt. font only.

Third contact: submission

Ravenrock has an excellent in house artist; however, if your work requires specific photos, graphs, drawings, etc., please submit as .jpg files in a separate file. Ravenrock will complete all final formatting. Cover designs are at the discretion of the publisher with approval from author.
