Copy Press welcomes proposals for each of our publishing series:

Common Intellectual
The books in this series are 100 pages. Page dimensions are 130mm x 195mm. Text only should be no more than 20,000 words (approx 250 per page). Photographs/images will be black and white.

These titles will be larger in format than the 100-page books

Our publishing programme maintains a rigorous ethos. We therefore recommend that you first take some time to familiarise yourself with our books in order to determine if we are the best publisher for you to approach. Reading some Copy Press titles prior to submitting a proposal is recommended and lets us know that you support what we do.

Proposals should be no longer than two A4 pages and should include:
• Your name, address, phone number and email.
• Covering letter describing your work and in which you compare your work to two Copy Press titles.
• Full description of your project, including an outline of chapters, if appropriate.

You may also include a manuscript or sample chapter, as appropriate.

Please send all proposal materials to:
Or send c/o:
Copy Press, 51 South Street
Ventnor, Isle of Wight, PO38 1NG

Copy Press commissioning editors meet every 6 weeks to discuss and agree on future publications.

All Copy Press titles are edited, carefully designed and sent to a copy-editor for perfecting and proofing.
