What is the submission policy at Perceval Press?

Please note that our office is not currently accepting submissions and we are unable to process or attend to unsolicited materials. Perceval Press and Perceval Pictures WILL NOT ACCEPT unsolicited manuscripts, film projects, or texts of any kind. Any unsolicited materials sent will not be opened, will not be returned, and will be discarded upon receipt.

How do you decide which books to publish?

To some degree, our decision depends on what we have in the works, and what we have recently published. We try to remain open-minded when considering submissions, knowing of course, that we are only able to publish about 12 books a year. We are not a large-volume publishing house, nor do we wish to be. We also work with an ad-hoc group of artists and writers who also present us with suggestions and projects.

Do you have a catalogue of your books?

No, Perceval Press does not print a catalogue–we feel that we already use enough trees as it is and prefer to keep our catalogue online.

Do you have a mailing list?

Currently we do not maintain a mailing list. The best way to find out about new releases is through the web site.
