Indian University Press exists to provide a publishing medium for authors who seek to publish good prose, literature, scholarship, and college texts that conform to the mission of Bacone College, which provides a liberal arts education in a caring Christian environment for a wide variety of students, especially American Indians.

The Editorial Board of Indian University Press will consider nonfiction and fiction manuscripts from authors who have

--a regional (eastern Oklahoma, western Arkansas) focus,

--or a focus on American Indian affairs,

--or have a unique point of view on higher education, history, the social sciences, or the humanities,

--or have a text that fits the Bacone College curriculum.

 For Nonfiction proposals, we seek a synopsis of the book (extensive, multipage overview of argument and evidence, what your book accomplishes and why it is unique, how many pages and illustrations, and timeline for completion/submission); a chapter by chapter outline (provide several sentences describing each chapter); your credentials (what are your credentials, education and experience, that make you the best person to write this book); and sample chapters (preferably, the first chapter or two of your book)

For Fiction, we seek a synopsis of the book (In 500 words, overview of the story, characters, and themes, number of pages, and timeline for completion/submission; also include brief author bio); and sample chapters (preferably, the first three chapters or first 50 pages of your book).
