BookFest Author Submission Guidelines

Publicists, please email info@bookfestwindsor.com for mailing information.

BookFest Windsor 2019: Dates: October 17-22, 2019. Theme to be announced.

All submissions are reviewed by the committee.

Accepting press releases with ARCs, review copies starting February until June. Books do not have to be released in Fall season of the current year. Published and self-published titles are considered, but please review our previous lineups to see if your title fits our profile. We look for authors from diverse backgrounds, Indigenous, Francophone, LGBTQI. We are grateful for all submissions, but because of high volume, only authors/books to be invited to the next BookFest Windsor will be contacted. We cannot return ARC submissions.

Please note that our funding, space, and terms of operation don’t allow us to include everyone we’d like. Please check local media for information on one of the many local author events in Windsor and Essex County. Because of space restrictions, our onsite bookseller can only carry books by authors featured at BookFest Windsor events, and we do not have space for table rental.
