The History Press is looking for folklorists, historians and writers who are interested in publishing accessible collections of folklore within their region. We are a traditional, full-service press that focuses exclusively on publishing works of local and regional interest, and we are dedicated to preserving and telling local stories that are too often overlooked.
We have published such collections of regional lore as Legends & Lore of Western Pennsylvania and Forgotten Tales of Pennsylvania. I am specifically searching for interested parties in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. However, The History Press is a national press and we would welcome proposals from any region of the United States.
I invite the members to browse our website at www.historypress.net. Look through our online catalog and author proposal form to get a better sense for our range and process, and please do not hesitate to email me with questions.
