Manuscript Submissions

Acorn Press focuses on publishing books by Australian authors which are thoughtful, well-informed and written from a Christian perspective. We aim to produce books that challenge readers to think about the issues we face in twenty-first century life and to enable us to effectively engage the world we live in. In addition to commissioning manuscripts, currently Acorn Press is accepting unsolicited non-fiction manuscripts from new and established authors that meet the above criteria. Manuscripts must be of a high standard of writing before being considered for publication. Our team at Acorn Press will be responsible for a final edit and proofing of the manuscript if it is accepted for publication.

What kinds of books does Acorn Press publish?

Our current focus is on publishing non-fiction manuscripts that we believe will be a valuable resource for Australian Christians. We are an interdenominational Christian publisher and welcome manuscripts written by emerging Australian authors, as well as established writers. Please note that we do not publish fiction or poetry, and we do not accept unsolicited submissions for children’s books or art books. We also do not accept books for publication that have already been self-published.
