Editorial, Publicity, Marketing, and Production are handled through our Boston office:
Please note that Godine is a small house and we must be unusually selective as to the books we publish. Authors and illustrators should note that Godine does not accept unsolicited manuscripts, portfolios, or proposals. Anyone wishing to have work considered for publication is advised to contact us through an agent or artist's representative. Any unsolicited material that is not accompanied by a self-addressed envelope and return postage will not be returned to the sender. David R. Godine, Publisher, accepts no responsibility for unsolicited materials. All unsolicited material that is not returned to the sender will be disposed after 3 months. Please do not telephone the office and please do not submit anything by e-mail.
Please direct all inquiries about subsidiary rights or publicity to Sue Berger Ramin at email@example.com.
Inquiries about royalties may be directed to Aaron Kerner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inquiries about permissions may be directed to Heather Tamarkin at email@example.com.
Contact Information for Freelancers
If you would like to offer your freelance services in copyediting, proofreading, or indexing, please send a cover letter and a resume to the Editorial staff at the Boston address. Please note that we require a minimum of five years editorial experience for consideration.
The majority of our design and production is executed in house, and most of the work we send out of house goes to people who are familiar with our design standards. Designers who would like to be considered for freelance work should send a cover letter and resume with a sample (non-returnable) of their work to our Production Department.
