Inlandia Imprint Books
The Inlandia Institute is embarking on an ambitious new publishing program: Inlandia Books, with two branches of publication available. All books submitted must be reviewed by Inlandia Institute’s Publications Committee and all accepted works must be written by writers who live in, work in, and/or write about Inland Southern California, except for those works submitted for the national Hillary Gravendyk Prize which can be submitted by any American writer.
This is the branch of publishing for highly polished works of literary fiction, nonfiction, and poetry; Inlandia’s Hillary Gravendyk Prize books are published under this line. Works submitted for consideration under this line are subject to the highest standards of literary publishing; only a very select few books will be accepted for publication as an Inlandia Literary title.
This is the branch for works that have a distinct interest to and voice of the communities located within the Inland Empire but with limited interest to those outside of this region. Works submitted for consideration under this line are also subject the highest standards of literary publishing, but if the work is deemed of significant merit to the literature of the region, Inlandia will work with authors to polish and refine the manuscript, as necessary.
General Manuscript Submission Guidelines
The Inlandia Institute initially evaluates proposals only; upon consensus, the publications committee may request the full manuscript. Queries and/or proposals must be submitted electronically. For instructions and full guidelines visit Inlandia’s Submittable portal.
Whether or not Inlandia Institute chooses to pursue publication of any particular manuscript will depend in large part on currently available resources of Inlandia Institute and is in no way a reflection on the quality or marketability of any given manuscript.
Also, it should be noted that all decisions are final.
