Call for Local Historians and Authors of Texas

Jose Chapa's picture

The History Press is looking for local historians and writers who are interested in publishing accessible histories of Texas and its individual communities. We are a traditional, full-service press that focuses exclusively on publishing works of local and regional interest. The History Press is dedicated to preserving and telling local stories that are too often overlooked by national presses. We publish a wide range of books from brief histories of a town to collections of folklore and essays on the local culture. A typical author has strong ties to their community, and they strive to make their local history more accessible.

I invite you to browse our website at  Look through our online catalog and author proposal form to get a better sense for our range and process.

Please don't hesitate to e-mail with questions.
