Unagented Calls for Submissions

Unagented submissions will only be considered in response to calls for submissions. To submit, please fill out the form below. Scarsdale Publishing does accept simultaneous submissions, but asks to be notified if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere while under consideration by us. We also consider reprints under acceptable circumstances. Authors are responsible for informing us if their work has previously appeared elsewhere. Failure to do so will void any agreements between the offending author and Scarsdale Publishing.

We will contact you if we are interested in your work, at which point you will be required to submit your full manuscript. If asked to do so, please use the following formatting:

  • RTF (Rich Text File) or .doc (Word Document) file
  • Font of Times New Roman, 12pt
  • Page break before each new chapter

Any book that glorifies depraved or illegal acts will not be considered. No pedophilia, bestiality, racial intolerance, rape as titillation, necrophilia or any other content we deem unacceptable will be considered.
