Scribe Publishing Company is a traditional royalty-paying small press that uses IPG for national distribution. We have been selected as a partner publisher to the We Need Diverse Books initiative. As such, we are particularly interested in fresh YA fiction. Fiction authors should be able to demonstrate they are active online and willing to help grow their platforms. In particular, in YA fiction, in the contemporary YA genre, we are looking for gritty, authentic and underrepresented voices. Otherwise in YA fiction, we are interested in new takes on magical realism, urban fantasy, etc. If it’s the kind of story a reader gets lost in, send it over.
Non-fiction we’re particularly interested in at this time:
--Michigan, Great Lakes Regional, or Midwestern travel guides;
--Memoirs, especially unorthodox travel-related or wanderlust memoirs; memoirs dealing with immigration issues; or modern-day addiction stories, especially if it relates to contemporary issues such as cannabis culture, kratom, opioid use, etc, or accounts of alternative therapies such as using psilocybin in addiction recovery;
--Offbeat humor, such as a wry addiction memoir about giving up wheat;
--Detroit history and culture (or, by extension, Great Lakes regional history and culture);
--Whole foods cookbooks with a modern hook;
