High Plains Press is a regional book publishing company specializing in books
about the American West, with special interest in things relating to Wyoming.
We publish about four books a year and have been in business since 1986.
We focus on "Old West" history and Poetry of the American West. Old West history
is what we can sell best. We are also interested in other nonfiction and historical
nonfiction relating to the West.
The bulls-eye of our target marketing area is Wyoming. We market successfully
throughout the Rockies and the Pacific Northwest. Our marketing is not as effective
elsewhere, but we are slowly expanding.
We publish one poetry title a year in a series called "Poetry of the American West." We
define this as poetry with a strong sense of place, that place being the West.
Query us with a ten-poem sample. Poets whose work we are seriously interested
in will be asked to submit a book-length manuscript in August when a selection
will be made.
We have no outlet for single poems or for article-length material. We do not
publish material written for children, nor do we publish fiction. Although
our primary interest is in historical nonfiction, we will continue to publish
contemporary nonfiction and how-to-books if they seem to fit our market.
Writers wishing to submit nonfiction should send a query letter, a 2-3
page summary of the manuscript and two sample chapters to High
Plains Press, P.O. Box 123, Glendo, WY 82213. Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope
for a reply or for return of your materials.
