Writing for Us

Osprey Publishing

Osprey is delighted to consider new title proposals for our established series, although we do NOT accept unsolicited manuscripts.

If you would like to propose a title for publication, please submit a short synopsis of not more than 2,000 words by email to: [email protected]

Alternatively send your synopsis to:

Commissioning Editor, Editorial Department
Osprey Publishing
Kemp House
Chawley Park
Cumnor Hill
Oxford OX2 9PH
UNITED KINGDOM

A synopsis should comprise: a brief overview of the nature of your proposal and outline of chapter headings and content; a list of available source material on which the research will be based; sample copies of illustrations that will accompany the title or article, together with details of where others will be obtained from.

Please note that there is no need to delve into the depths of the subject at this stage, as the synopsis serves only to give us an introduction to the proposed title. Should the synopsis be suitable and of good quality, further details can be requested and discussed. While we cannot guarantee to publish any submitted proposals, we will certainly give each one our full consideration.

 

Osprey Games

Osprey Games is always delighted to consider new proposals for board games, card games, wargames, and roleplaying games.

If you would like to propose a game, please submit a short synopsis or sell-sheet of no more than one side of A4/US Letter by email to [email protected] or send it to:

Osprey Games
Kemp House
Chawley Park
Cumnor Hill
Oxford OX2 9PH

Please do not send unsolicited prototypes, however.

A synopsis should be a brief overview of your game, covering such topics as:

  • Genre/period/setting/theme
  • A summary of the mechanics
  • Player count
  • Average play time
  • Development status (e.g. fully play-tested, in development, etc.)
  • Essentially, what makes it unique and interesting!

Please note that there is no need to go into great detail at this stage, as the synopsis serves only to give us an introduction to the proposed game. Should the synopsis be suitable and of interest, further details can be requested and discussed. While we cannot guarantee to publish any submitted proposals, we will certainly give each one our full consideration.
