How to Submit Your Manuscript or Proposal

We prefer that you send an e-mail query initially. If your concept fits within our parameters, please provide a succinct description of your proposal and how your concept is unique—compared to other resources in the market. Please include a brief explanation of your ministry experience and publishing history, if any. Send query to our Director of Publishing Administration, Rev. Debra Berry: dberry@sspbnbc.com.

First, send an e-mail query.
If a publisher contacts you and requests a manuscript, you may then send a submission by REGULAR mail. Do not submit your work via fax or e-mail. We cannot review your proposal over the phone.

What to Include in Your Submission:

  • A one-page cover letter with your name, address, daytime telephone number, e-mail address, and a brief summary of your manuscript—including the theme, purpose, age group, and genre.
  • Some information regarding your ministry experience, your connections to the people, groups, and organizations to whom this concept appeals, your publishing history, and author platform.
  • A typed, double-spaced copy of your manuscript (if your manuscript is less than 1,500 words)
  • A typed, double-spaced copy of your manuscript (if your manuscript is more than 1500 words). This sample should include an introduction and one or two well-written chapters—not to exceed 3,500 words?as well as a summary of remaining chapters or material.
  • A self-addressed, stamped envelope with sufficient postage for the publisher's response and the return of your manuscript. (We will recycle your manuscript pages if you do not want it to be returned.)
  • Unless you are a professional illustrator, it is not necessary—or even advisable—to include any illustration with your proposal. Please DO NOT send original artwork.
  • Send submission to Book Publishing Director, Sunday School Publishing Board, 330 Charlotte Avenue, Nashville, TN 37201-1188.
