HOW TO SUBMIT TO ITOH PRESS:
Submit a cover letter in the body of the email that contains the following:
- Word Count
- Brief synopsis
- A short biography
- Your marketing plan, should we accept your manuscript for publication. We expect our authors to be active in the marketing of their titles alongside our efforts.
Although we like to encourage open, free and creative expression, do let us know whether the piece contains any questionable content. We may put disclaimers about content if it could potentially disturb our reader, so do let us know in advance. For instance, we allow rape under certain circumstances, but it should not be meant to titillate only educate. Writing about child abuse is one thing, but we aren’t interested in seeing the acts described in detail. Itoh Press is also interested in stories with a happy ending.
