Book Proposals

The Wisconsin Historical Society Press, Wisconsin's first publisher, publishes widely in the history and biography of Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest. The Press is looking for good books based on solid research that will appeal to both academic and general audiences. Authors who have an understanding of the audiences they are writing for and the niches their projects fill will have the best chance for success.

Providing the Press with complete information will enhance the Press's ability to evaluate your project in a timely manner, and the proposal template that can be downloaded here will help you give us the information we need.
