SteinerBooks Author Submission Guidelines

We continually look for quality writing on anthroposophic and related topics, alternative healing, cultural renewal, Waldorf education, and illustrated children's literature. If you are interested in submitting a book query, proposal, or manuscript to SteinerBooks, Bell Pond Books, or Lindisfarne Books, please follow these guidelines:

A book proposal should include

  • a synopsis of the book
  • a table of contents or outline
  • the author's résumé
  • at least two or three sample chapters

Your manuscript should be double-spaced, in upper and lower case letters. Do not insert blank lines between paragraphs except where significant breaks occur in the text.

The review process for manuscripts may take two to four months.

Please note that we seldom publish fiction, poetry, or art books.

Be sure to include a self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage for a response from our editors (from outside the U.S., include an international postal money order for postage). The manuscripts and proposals themselves will not be returned.

Please send materials to the attention of
