Writing on Stone Press


Thank you for your interest in Writing on Stone Press. We only publish non-fiction. We are particularly interested in non-fiction titles suitable for 20-somethings post-secondary students and recent graduates.

We will review non-fiction submissions in the form of query letters, proposals, sample pages, sample chapters and complete manuscripts. You must include information about your background, and writing, such as a résumé or CV. Submissions for the Canadian Career Series must be a proposal or query with résumé.

Allow a period of 3-4 months for us to consider your submission. Feel free to contact us by email if you haven't received a reply after that time.

Email Submissions: Materials should be in Word or PDF format.

Hard copy submissions: Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. International items must have Canadian postage or international postage coupons - US stamps do not work in the Canadian system. Please do not submit any original artwork or valuable materials. We'd all be unhappy if something precious went missing in transport.

What We're Looking For:

We are currently soliciting submissions for our Canadian Career Series. Before submitting, please review our current titles for format and style.

Career Series Submissions: Submit a proposal or query with your résumé/CV. Include a list of your publications or written work. Canadian Career authors should be working in their field, be (relatively) recent graduates or have post-secondary teaching experience. Solid research and writing skills are required.

We are particularly interested in the following:

  • So You Want to Be a Dentist, Eh?
  • So You Want to Be a Veterinarian, Eh?
  • So You Want to Get Your MBA, Eh?
  • So You Want to Be An Engineer, Eh?
  • So You Want to be An Architect, Eh?
  • So You Want to Be a Nurse, Eh?
  • So You Want to Be a Psychologist, Eh?
  • So You Want to Be Mayor, Eh?
  • You Want to Get On Reality TV, Eh?
  • So You Want to Save the World, Eh?

First Nations, Métis and Inuit Works:

We are particularly interested in non-fiction works that offer substantive insight into culture, world views, spirituality and similar insights.

Writing on Stone Press accepts queries for titles already submitted to other publishers. Do let us know that you've submitted to multiple publishers simultaneously.

Thank you for considering placing your work with Writing On Stone!
