This page contains useful information for both prospective and contracted authors.
See the downloads box for documents relating to every aspect of publishing with Pluto – from our open access publishing programme, to information on submitting a book proposal and working within our style guidelines.
Pluto is an independent, radical publisher of non-fiction books. If you have a proposal for a book you think would fit our list then we would love to hear from you.
Please note – as a publisher of non-fiction we will be unable to consider poetry collections or novels.
Before you submit a proposal to one of our editors, whose details and commissioning subject areas can be found on the Contact Us page, please read our ‘Proposal Guidelines’.
We will endeavour to respond to your email as soon as we can, but please be aware that due to the high level of unsolicited submissions that Pluto receives this might take up to two months.
If you have signed a contract with Pluto and begun work on your manuscript you should familiarise yourself with our house style, which is detailed in the ‘Style Guidelines’ document in the downloads box.
You can also read our comprehensive ‘Author’s Guide to Publishing with Pluto’, which covers the editorial and production processes, as well as outlining the role of our sales, marketing, publicity and rights departments.
