Write For Us

We welcome ideas for new books in all the areas in which we publish.

We now use an online submissions portal for all book proposal submissions, which can be found by clicking the below ‘Click here to Submit’ button.


Please note that Submittable is a third party organisation and is not managed by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. You can find Submittable’s Terms & Conditions here: https://www.submittable.com/terms

We very much prefer submissions via our online portal. However, if you feel a postal submission is necessary, it should be sent to the following address:

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Carmelite House
50 Victoria Embankment

If you are in the US, you can send your proposal to our US office and it will be forwarded on your behalf.

Hachette Book Group/Jessica Kingsley Publishers
123 South Broad Street
Suite 2750
Philadelphia, PA 19109

Please be aware that material submitted will not be returned to you.

Your proposal will be carefully read by our editorial team. The editorial process can take some time, and it may take up to eight weeks before we are able to let you know whether or not we are interested in taking your proposal forward.

For a list of commissioning editors and the areas in which they publish, see the People page.

If you have any questions or concerns about the proposal submission process please proposals@jkp.com.
