Submit Your Work

Yellow Arrow Publishing is currently accepting full-length manuscripts of creative nonfiction by authors who identify as women from around the world. At this time, we only accept digital submissions.


  • We are looking for creative nonfiction manuscripts, between 5,000 and 50,000 words, with optimistic, hopeful vibes.

  • Manuscripts must be submitted in English and must be complete (do not send partials or summaries).

  • Send your manuscript as an attachment (as a .doc/.docx, .rtf, or .pdf) to—at this time, submit your manuscript double-spaced with 12 pt font and at least 1-inch margins; number your pages consecutively.

  • Use as the subject of your email: Yellow Arrow Publishing, manuscript submissions.

  • Include in the body of the email a brief (one paragraph) synopsis of the manuscript, estimated word and page counts, and a bio or short introduction.

  • We will consider previously published manuscripts as long as the author currently contains all rights—if previously published, please list where and when in the body of your email.

  • At this time, we do not require exclusive submission (please let us know if you will be submitting your manuscript to more than one publisher and contact us as soon as possible if you choose to go with someone else).

  • Multiple submissions are accepted but please send each manuscript in a separate email that follows the guidelines.

By sending your submission you agree to the following statements:

  • You are a writer that identifies as a woman

  • You have read and submitted within the guidelines

  • You understand that the process can take 4–6 weeks

Note that the guidelines can change at any time—check this page before submitting. We are unable to respond to those who do not submit within the guidelines.
