Catholic Answers publishes popular books and booklets that explain, defend, and promote the Catholic faith. We do not publish fiction, poetry, books on prayer or spirituality, scholarly works, or academic papers.
Authors who wish to submit their suitable manuscripts or book ideas for consideration may send a query to [email protected] describing in a few sentences the work’s concept, its benefits, and its intended audience.
Please do not send unsolicited manuscripts or mail hard copies.
We prefer submissions be completed articles, but experienced authors may submit queries. Please send to [email protected] and include “Feature article,” “Conversion story,” or “Query” in the subject line. Articles should be 2,000 to 2,500 words in length, including a 150- to 200-word sidebar, on a topic related to Catholic apologetics or evangelization. MS Word files are preferred, but other kinds of text files are acceptable, or the article may be sent in the body of your email. Due to the high volume of submissions, it normally takes 4-6 weeks for us to respond.
