At Stenhouse we believe in the power of teachers’ words, ideas, and actions. And we also believe in creating space for educators’ voices through professional books written “by teachers, for teachers.” We invite you to consider sharing your own ideas by submitting a book proposal.
Stenhouse publishes professional books for PreK–12th grade educators, and our books balance sharing relevant research with stories from the classroom and practical resources. We are always interested in new ideas, perspectives, and writing styles, and welcome first-time writers and writers from underrepresented communities. We do not publish children’s books, textbooks, workbooks, or memoirs.A book proposal includes three parts:
1. A cover letter
2. A table of contents with chapter summaries
3. A sample chapter
You don’t have to wait until you have a full proposal to reach out to us though. Whether you have a table of contents and some chapter summaries or just a seed idea you’d like to pitch, our editors would love to hear from you. We’re always happy to answer questions about the proposal process. While we are not always able to offer lengthy feedback due to the volume of submissions we receive, we do respond to each and every message we receive from teacher writers.
Please send all inquiries and proposals to email@example.com. A member of the editorial team will respond to your email within four weeks.
We hope to hear from you soon!
