Submissions

JBW 2018 will run from Saturday, March 4th to Sunday, March 11th. Weekends and weekday evening events will be held at Kings Place, N1 9AG, and midweek lunchtime and early afternoon talks at JW3, NW3 6ET.

In addition to the annual festival, we now programme occasional events throughout the year, mostly to coincide with major spring and autumn book launches. If you would like to submit an idea to us for an out-of-festival event, please be in touch. We can sometimes present authors at very short notice.

Apropos the festival, we are interested in presenting a wide range of events to include leading thinkers on art, science, technology and innovation, as well as more traditional talks. Topical debates around recent books are very popular. While the nucleus of our festival is Jewish-themed, our speakers, events and audience all defy narrow categorisation and most of our talks are of universal interest.  

As a general principle, while we consider works published between March and July, books published in the UK between September and March are of even greater interest. The publication date is less significant for international authors and books in translation.  

To submit a proposal, please send us 2 copies or proof copies of the title along with an information sheet containing the following information:

Title and Author

Original language if not English

Publication Date

Author Biography

Synopsis

Author's availability

Contact details for author, representative or publisher

 

Please do also include any other publicity material that may be relevant.

Submissions should be posted to the following address:

If copies of the book are not yet available, please submit an information sheet as detailed above to submissions@jewishbookweek.com
