Thank you for your interest in writing for Prufrock Press. Prufrock is actively seeking quality materials written by professionals and educators that support the education of giftedadvanced, and special needs learners.

Currently, Prufrock is interested in publishing several types of materials: supplementary classroom materials (e.g., advanced curriculum), professional development books, resources for serving children with special needs, primary and supplementary college textbooks, and nonfiction trade books for parents, teachers, and children. If you are interested in proposing a book in one of these areas, please see "General Submission" below.

We are also seeking submissions for Prufrock Academic Press, a new venture publishing academic, peer-reviewed books and materials that support scholarship and research-based practice related to the education of gifted and talented children. If you are interested in proposing a book for this line, please see "Prufrock Academic Press" below.

Past experience has shown that a book prospectus is the best way for Prufrock’s staff to review an author’s idea for a new publication. For this reason, Prufrock Press does not consider unsolicited manuscripts. Please follow the guidelines under each category carefully.

If you need clarification regarding any of these points or have other questions, please feel free to e-mail your questions to submissions@prufrock.com. Phone calls concerning book ideas will not be accepted.

Thank you for your interest in Prufrock Press Inc. We look forward to receiving your book proposal.
