Considering working with a nonfiction publisher?

Nonfiction publishers come in many sizes and shapes, so you have many choices and need to shop for the right fit. Some follow the traditional path of only welcoming submission proposals from literary agents. Others accept proposals or manuscripts directly from authors. Yet others (alternately called independent or hybrid publishers or self-publishing service providers) provide services for a fee authors pay. And new publisher business models may develop at any time! These 100 are a great place to begin your research. And if these aren’t enough, go to Reedsy’s list of 300.
