IVP Proposal Process

Unfortunately, we are unable to review or respond to any unsolicited proposals, manuscripts, or self-published books. We regret that submissions will not be returned. Submit a book proposal to IVP only if you have had direct contact with one of our editors. You should submit your proposal by email directly to that editor. They will provide you with appropriate submission guidelines and information about the proposal process.

Other Ways to Submit Your Manuscript to Christian Publishers

Trade book proposals may be submitted to and The Writer's Edge. These organizations both offer their services at modest rates that allow your work to be reviewed simultaneously by more than forty-five other Christian publishers.

IVP is not able to offer manuscript evaluations, such a service is available from The Christian CommunicatorThe Christian Writers' Market Guide also offers various resources for writers.
