Submissions

Prospective authors

Lion Hudson is committed to publishing books true to the Christian faith and welcomes submissions that fit our imprints. Learn more about us here.

Please familiarise yourself with our books before sending us your submission. This will give you a better idea if your manuscript would be suitable for us. If the genre you have in mind does not appear on our site, then unfortunately it's not the right fit for us.

Please note we do not typically accept manuscripts for poetry, children’s poetry and biblical fiction anymore.

Please include the following information alongside your manuscript:

• Your name, address, email address and phone number
• The title of your manuscript
• Is it for adults or children?
• Is it fiction or non-fiction?
• If it is for children, which age group is it for?

It’s helpful if you include a cover letter and synopsis. What we would like to know is:

• What is the book about?
• Who is your audience?
• What other books by Lion Hudson or other publishers are similar?
• What makes this book unique/interesting?
• A little bit about you. Have you been published before? Do you have experience in writing through your career, blogging or similar? Do you have an established audience as a speaker, writer, blogger, artist or similar?

Send your submission as a .doc, .docx or .pdf file as an attachment in an email to: submissions@lionhudson.com.

Once we have received your submission, you will be sent an automated confirmation email. We aim to review all submissions within three months of receiving them and will be in touch once we have done so.

If you are unable to submit your manuscript by email, you can still send it to us the traditional way.

Please address your envelope to:

Editorial submissions
Wilkinson House
Jordan Hill Business Park
Banbury Road

If you would like us to return your manuscript should we decide against publishing it, please include a franked return envelope (this only works in the UK).
