Submission Guidelines

Row House will begin accepting submissions from literary agents and un-agented authors starting January 1, 2022. Row House accepts book proposals for non-fiction titles in the following genres: self-help, general wellness, spirituality and spiritual wellness, personal development, social sciences, and business. We are specifically seeking titles that are written through the lens of social justice, liberation, and equity. We are not accepting fiction, poetry, or memoir at this time. Full manuscripts will not be considered—book proposal format only.

If you would like to submit a proposal at that time, please send the following:

  • A one-page query letter introducing your book, who you are, and who you hope to reach through its publication

  • A book proposal (30-40 pages), to include:

    • An overview explaining your book, what it will contain, why you are the person to write it, and a description of your audience and/or community (3-5 pages)

    • A marketing section to include your bio, your marketing platform, and a list of 4-5 comparative titles with links to their Amazon sales pages (3-5 pages)

    • A chapter summary, offering 1-2 paragraphs on each chapter, explaining what each will contain, including any exercises, activities, or resources (10-15 pages)

    • One sample chapter that best illustrates your content, writing style, and what you hope your book will achieve (10-15 pages)

All proposals should be in 12-point font, double-spaced, and sent as a PDF with pages numbered. Please also include your name, phone number, and email address on both the query letter and the proposal.

Email your proposal to with this subject line: Book Proposal Submission [author name] [book title] [genre]
