For Authors

Sheffield Phoenix Press’s promise to authors is:
  • sympathetic and non-intrusive copy-editing by experienced editors
  • promptness in responding to queries
  • a reasonable royalty rate
  • a realistic print-run for the life of the book (and not under 300 copies, as some publishers)
  • to keep books in print (and not remainder them after one year, as some publishers)
  • representation at major scholarly conferences
Authors with a manuscript, whether completed or in preparation, are invited to contact one of the two Publishers [details available on the Contact Us page] with a brief proposal. Manuscripts offered by the author will always be sent for evaluation to a series editor or a reader for the Press.
