Patchwork Press is not currently taking submissions in the traditional sense. Instead, we’re looking for authors to join the Patchwork Press team. Keep one hundred percent of the rights (and royalties) to all of your work, while still having a publishing team at your disposal to make sure each title you publish reaches its maximum potential. From concept to creation and beyond, we pool our efforts to make each title a success. We’ve created a publishing community here to cheer one another one, bounce ideas around with, and to pool our resources and talents to ensure that each book we put out is something we can all be proud of.

Patchwork Press thrives when we have authors who are dedicated to putting out professional quality young adult, middle grade and new adult books. If you’ve self-published in the past or simply researched self-publishing, you know how much goes into every title. Cover design, formatting, copyediting, proofreading, beta reading, marketing… to name a few. We are looking for authors who put out their very best work every time, and are willing to support other authors as they will support you. If you believe in self-publishing, putting out stories that readers will love, and engaging in the indie publishing community, then Patchwork Press might be just the publisher you’ve been looking for. We’re not looking for experts (although we certainly won’t turn them away), simply authors who are passionate about publishing!

Please note: As we are a YA/NA/MG publisher, we are only taking submissions in those categories at this time.
