Manuscript Submission Guidelines

General Submission Guidelines

Wisdom Publications accepts unsolicited submissions from authors and agents but only on topics directly related to Buddhism. Authors should have relevant professional, academic, or Dharma-teaching credentials.

To submit your manuscript, please download, complete, and return this questionnaire to the email address included in the questionnaire. (You cannot fill this out online; you must download it first.)

If you make your submission via post, be sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope if you would like your materials returned.

Wisdom Publications use the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, as its house style guide and the American Heritage Dictionary for default spellings. Our preferred formatting and many style issues particular to Buddhist publishing are addressed in our Style Guide for Works on Indian and Tibetan Buddhism.
