Flatpage, already a distinguished editorial agency, is thrilled to announce the launch of its 2024 publishing program, inviting authors to submit proposals for engaging nonfiction books aimed at a broad readership. The upcoming program marks Flatpage’s expansion into full-scale publishing, complementing but independent from its renowned editorial services.
Simultaneously, the publishing house introduces its inaugural book, The Art of Academic Editing: A Guide for Authors and Editors, signaling the dawn of its venture into publishing endeavors.
Cultivating Ideas that Resonate:
Flatpage seeks thought-provoking manuscripts that translate research insights into compelling narratives, fostering positive change, challenging norms, and inspiring innovative perspectives. The program specializes in assisting academics in reaching wider audiences, amplifying the impact of their ideas, and collaborating with journalists to explore long-form storytelling.
Exploring Diverse Subjects:
Authors are invited to submit proposals for manuscripts spanning the visual arts, humanities, and social sciences. Flatpage seeks works of cultural, social, or political significance, offering fresh perspectives and critical evaluations of contemporary subjects. The publishing house aims to transform complex research into accessible narratives tailored to a diverse readership.

Flatpage offers a unique publishing experience, providing tailored editorial services aligned with authors’ needs. With an in-house team comprising seasoned editors, former academics, and journalists, the publishing house ensures 1:1 attention and a streamlined process—typically resulting in publication within a few months of content finalization. Editorial support, available for a fee in addition to complimentary copyediting and proofreading, includes comprehensive assistance, such as coaching, developmental editing, and line editing, making Flatpage distinct from traditional scholarly presses.
