We accept for publication in book form a small number of manuscripts each year. Before submitting a manuscript to us, please read carefully the ‘About Us’ pages, particularly the About SLG Press page, and also study our list to see if you think your work fits in with what we publish. Our focus is on books which, in a Christian context, give guidance and support on prayer, including books which relate to works of prayer and spirituality from past centuries and the authors of those works.
The usual length of our publications is between 7,000 and 20,000 words. Longer manuscripts will not usually be suitable for us, although shorter manuscripts may be considered. Our preference is for un-illustrated text. The number and complexity of illustrations which we can include inside our books is limited; such illustrations should in any case be black and white.
We receive requests periodically for publications which could help young people or adults approaching confirmation; and for short, simple publications written for a non-academic audience of adults wishing to learn about and begin to embrace the Christian faith. We welcome for consideration manuscripts which might suit this market.
Please do not submit full-length books, or dissertations, poetry, drama, fiction, autobiography or (in general) collections of sermons, essays or seminar papers by multiple authors.
If you wish to submit a manuscript for consideration, please download and complete a Book Proposal Form and email it to the address on the form, together with a sample chapter. If you cannot send your proposal by email, please send it by post to: The Editor, SLG Press, Convent of the Incarnation, Fairacres, Parker Street, Oxford, OX4 1TB
At this stage there is no need to send an entire manuscript. Please do not send us original documents, such as manuscripts, photographs and illustrations, since we cannot accept responsibility for irreplaceable materials.
