Submission Guidelines

  • We only work with Canadian writers at this time.
  • Boulardarie Island Press is primarily a trade publisher and we do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. We do accept queries from agents, other trade publishers, and referrals from established Canadian writers who are willing to recommend your work.
  • In addition to our trade publications we offer manuscript evaluations, substantive editing, and copy editing services for those authors wishing to self-publish or ready their manuscripts for submission to trade publishers other than Boulardarie Island Press or to agents. Do not send your manuscript with your initial email query.  We require a short description of the work, the genre, and your writing resume in the body of your email.
  • We also offer co-publishing opportunities for writers/organizations who wish to self-publish but require access to distribution which we can provide.
