Submissions to K&W


Thank you for your interest in a publication of your manuscript at Verlag Kiepenheuer & Witsch.

Before submitting a proposal, we suggest you click around our site and take a look at the kinds of books we’ve published. This will help you gain an idea of what we’re looking for.

Please do not send us any originals by regular mail. Suitable manuscripts and text samples can be sent in digital form to:

All submitted texts will be carefully checked by the responsible editor. It is therefore sufficient if you send us a single e-mail.

Please also refrain from inquiring about the status of the examination, which unfortunately cannot be answered due to the extraordinarily high number of daily entries. If interested, we will contact you.

Legal notice: The publisher is not liable for unsolicited submitted manuscripts, images, data or similar.
