Submission Guidelines

Unsolicited Submissions

Tunstull Studio Publications is an independent, non-profit press that publishes non-fiction every year. We’re looking for novels, memoir, creative nonfiction, hybrid works, and story of exceptional literary merit that demonstrate a high level of mastery.

With your submission, be sure to include:

  1. A cover letter that briefly describes the work and the author’s background, lists any publication credits if applicable, and explains why the work is a fit for Tunstull Studio Publishing

  2. A brief synopsis of the work (“this happens, then this happens…”), no more than two pages in length.

  3. The work itself. Writers may submit either the full manuscript or a sample of between 20 and 30 pages. Please keep in mind that full manuscripts take longer to review. All manuscripts should include page numbers on every page.

Please include all parts of your submission in a single PDF.

Given the high volume of submissions we receive, please expect a response time of three to six months. We appreciate your patience. Phone calls, emails, and letters will not speed up the process, and are strongly discouraged.
