The LIBRARY OF EARLY MAINE LITERATURE invites the submission of book proposals from prospective authors mindful of the mission of the press—to reissue rare and important works of Maine literature written before 1900 in beautiful, high quality critical editions that contain full supporting materials.

Prospective authors should email the press a 1-2 page letter of inquiry, providing an overview of the book they plan to edit, its significance, and their qualifications for the project. For general letters of inquiry, please contact the press by email:

Please do not send attachments unless they are solicited by an editor. The press cannot be held responsible for unsolicited materials.
