Submission Guidelines

The submission period for SBF 2019 is now closed. We will begin accepting SBF 2020 submissions for review next March 1, 2019.

Every year, the Savannah Book Festival seeks to showcase over 40 authors who are invited to give a 30-minute solo presentation and whose books are published within a calendar year of the Festival. SBF does not present self-published or author-financed published books. Also, the Festival does not offer vendor or exhibition tents as the focus of the Festival is on the 40 authors invited to appear. Submissions are accepted from March 1 – June 15 preceding the February Festival. Before submitting a book to the Festival, please read the Submission Guidelines to insure that the submission meets all of the criteria set forth by the Author Selection Committee.
