We’re interested in books that are grounded in ecological research and written for a general audience. If you have an idea for a book that fits these broad criteria, email Kate.
We can help you develop your idea by putting you in touch with other ecologists, writers, agents and publishers. No previous publishing experience is necessary. We especially want to help authors traditionally overlooked by the industry so if you don’t see yourself reflected when browsing for books, please get in touch.
