Submissions

Andrews McMeel Publishing is a leading publisher of poetry, inspiration, humor, and children’s books and licensed, popular calendars. We publish as many as 150 books and 200 calendars annually. We are happy to consider submissions from creators and literary agents via email or regular mail, but materials submitted by any other means will not be considered. Please keep in mind that we receive a high volume of submissions and we do not answer calls or visits regarding submissions.

Before submitting a proposal, please familiarize yourself with the types of work we publish and consider whether your work would be a good fit for us. Please also keep in mind that we receive a high volume of submissions. We respond to everyone, but due to the time-consuming nature of reviewing samples, this process may take 12 weeks or longer. We appreciate your patience. We do not accept calls or walk-ins regarding submissions.
