Submissions Guidelines

A Note on Submissions to St Vladimir’s Seminary Press

The St Vladimir’s Seminary Press Advisory Council, which reviews projects for publication, is composed of the Seminary Chancellor and Dean, the Editor in Chief of the Press, its Marketing Manager, and Senior Advisor. SVS Press Series editors and subject-matter experts, who are often but not always faculty members, are invited assist the Advisory Council in evaluating submissions. 

Authors and translators are asked to e-mail a complete, double-spaced, word-processed manuscript in a standard format (e.g., Word or Open Office), and with Unicode fonts only, a detailed cover letter, and a résumé or curriculum vitae, to benedict@svots.edu. Manuscripts must follow St Vladimir’s Seminary Press house style, and should contain no formatting beyond paragraph indentations, italics where appropriate, and block quotes correctly indented but still double-spaced. 

Illustrators are asked to e-mail their URL and résumé or curriculum vitae in a standard format (e.g., Word or Open Office or PDF) to benedict@svots.edu. Portfolios, on CD or in hard copy, may be sent to:

Editor-in-Chief, SVS Press
575 Scarsdale Road
Yonkers, NY 10707

NOTE: While St Vladimir’s Seminary Press may review proposals, it will not make a commitment to publication until the author has submitted a complete manuscript, and that complete manuscript passes successfully through the review and approval process.

NOTE ON CHILDREN'S BOOKS: St Vladimir's Seminary Press will not consider manuscripts for children's books unless they are accompanied by sample illustrations, story boards,  and a guarantee from the author that the artist is fully committed to the project.
