Manuscripts

Submissions

Due to a high volume of submissions, we are not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time. 

We are only accepting submissions through current HUIA authors, individuals or organisations whom we have a preexisting relationship. Please contact your publishing manager directly about new material you'd like to pitch.  

Manuscripts or ideas that have already been submitted, prior to 17 May 2021, will be assessed. 

We will reassess this the end of September.

 

The Assessment Process

Once we have received your manuscript, we will send you an acknowledgement of receipt. We receive a high volume of submissions and it can take up to three months to assess. 

If your manuscript is accepted, congratulations! We will be in touch and send you a draft contract. At this stage, we will also send you a document detailing our publishing process and how we will work with you.

If your manuscript is declined, you will be informed by email. Unfortunately, we are unable to give critical commentary on every manuscript that we receive, so your email will not include detailed feedback. We do appreciate your understanding about this.

For all enquiries about submitted manuscripts, please email manuscripts@huia.co.nz
