Welcome to the Open Lens literary community. Has your imagination been sparked recently or do you simply want to tell your own story? We’d love to hear from you.


We are now accepting queries in all fiction categories. We are currently not accepting  genre fiction (e.g.,romance, sci-fi, horror, westerns)


We are now accepting queries in the following categories: Memoir, Biography, Self-Help, narrative nonfiction.


An alternative to the traditional large publisher, Open Lens, is an independent imprint with national distribution, quicker timelines, and a dedication to our authors. Our authors are our partners. Therefore, we ensure that every one of our authors is made a priority. Our highly skilled team offers editorial expertise, custom book designs, and personalized attention. Open Lens publishes a select number of books annually written by authors whose unique voices would not be found in most publisher’s offerings. Our books will educate, inspire, and empower.
