Submissions for the 2023 Festival have now closed.
Submissions for the 2024 Festival will open in March 2023 and remain open through June 2023.
REMINDER: The Author Selection Committee reviews all submissions with the goal of creating an appealing mix of literature for all visitors. Every year, SBF aims to bring a diverse mix of authors from a variety of genres, disciplines, heritages, cultures and more.
Types of genres considered include:
- Fiction – Literary, Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, YA etc.
- Nonfiction – History, Autobiography/Biography, Memoir, Cookbooks, Art, Culture, etc.
- Nonfiction titles are considered from a variety of perspectives and are selected depending on if they encourage the Festival’s mission of engaging in civil conversation
- Graphic Novels/Comics
- Titles with a local focus
Please note there is not a children’s component to the Savannah Book Festival, thus children’s books are not included in the festival.
Due to the volume of work submitted, SBF does not present self-published or author-financed published books. Also, the Festival does not offer vendor or exhibition tents.
