InterVarsity Press is the publishing arm of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and operates within the framework of their Purpose Statement and Doctrinal Basis. Please review our About Us section for more information about our purpose, history, values, and faith commitments. For academic projects, review our IVP Academic vision statement.
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.
We are reviewing submissions for adult fiction works focused on themes of spiritual formation and personal transformation—please do not submit romance, biblical fiction, or historical novels. Please complete the form below and upload a sample—15,000 words—of your book. If we are interested, we will ask you to submit the full manuscript. We are not able to offer contracts for partial manuscripts. Response time is up to ten weeks; we are not available to answer questions by phone or email.
