Blair Now Accepting Electronic Submissions | A Guest Blog Post by Steve Kirk, Editor-in-Chief at Blair

blair8Please answer the following question by selecting one of the choices below.

At John F. Blair, the staff feels strongly that:

  1. Eight-track still delivers the best sound
  2. Original Recipe beats Extra Crispy and (God forbid) Grilled
  3. Andy Griffith was the epitome of enlightened Southern manhood
  4. Book publishers should continue to accept snail-mail submissions
  5. All of the above

The answer is 5, of course. We raise our lighters to Lynyrd Skynyrd, bow to the genius of the 11 Herbs and Spices, and stake our spiritual claim in Sheriff Taylor’s Mayberry, not Boss Hogg’s HazzardCounty. But more to the point, we welcome queries and manuscript samples by regular mail.

That being said though, we also realize it’s time to dip our collective toe in the new millennium by accepting electronic submissions, both fiction and nonfiction. We’ve set up an e-mail address—editorial@blairpub.com—for that purpose. See Blair’s Manuscript Guidelines and Prospective Authors pages for details.
