About The Unsung Masters Series

Pleiades Press publishes one book a year through the Unsung Masters Series, each volume of which focuses on an important writer who has been unjustly neglected and/or whose work is currently out of print. In addition to a generous sample of creative work, every volume includes numerous essays on the writer's work.


The Unsung Masters Series is interested in proposals for future volumes. Proposals must be submitted each year by September 1. All proposals we receive will be then considered in September and October.

Proposals should include a one-page biography of the author, including a discussion of the author's status as "unsung," and a brief sample (5-10 pages) of the author's work. Please be sure to explain who currently owns the rights to the work and/or any potential rights complications that might arise in the production of the book.

Proposals should be emailed to Kevin Prufer.
