Call for Proposals for Books of Regional History: The History Press

The History press is looking for historians, folklorists, and writers who are interested in publishing accessible books of regionally-focused history on a variety of topics (everything from war history to food history). We are a traditional, full-service press that focuses exclusively on publishing works of local and regional interest, and we are dedicated to preserving and telling local stories that are too often overlooked. I am specifically searching for interested parties in New England, New York, and New Jersey. However, The History Press is a national press and we would welcome proposals from any region of the United States. 

I invite you to browse our website. Look through our online catalog and author proposal form to get a better sense for our range and process.

Although we do not publish literary titles, we would love to work with literary authors who are also interested in writing about regional history (basically, I am sending this post here because I am guessing there are some history buffs on this list who are also really great writers – which is the combo I am seeking).
