Publishing Policies

Matrika Press publishes transformational stories and works that would otherwise remain untold.  Also, we resurrect out-of-print manuscripts to ensure our historical works remain accessible, as well as publish transformational fiction for select clients!

Matrika Press titles are automatically made available to more than tens of thousands of retailers, libraries, schools, and other distribution and fulfillment partners, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Chapters/Indigo (Canada), and other well-known book retailers and wholesalers across North America.   ALSO: in the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and New Zealand and other Global partners.

As a publishing house, Matrika Press founds its roots in transformational religious and spiritual values and principles. In 2022 we are pausing our unsolicited submission process to focus on current publications in the work with our partners and authors. Below is an overview of policies that have served us well over the years.

Our goal has been to publish stories and works that would otherwise remain untold. Depending on the client, we have offered subsidized, traditional and collaborative publishing. Our authors come from many backgrounds, and their works may be non-fiction or fiction.

Essentially our submission criteria we have asked of authors is this:

❉ Are you a theologian, clergy, spiritual leader, or visionary and wish to share your insights with the world? Let us know!

❉ Are you a transformational author with works of fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose, meditations or rituals, self-help or memoirs, stories or folklore? Matrika Press would be honored for you to submit your work to us.

❉ Does your work reflect transformational values, such as Living Life as a Prayer, Building Beloved Community, Peaceableness and Intentional Visualization, or exploration of the mystic and mysterious? If so, Matrika Press is happy to consider publishing your manuscript.

We welcomed new authors as well as have seasoned authors coming to us that have been published in the past whose work is now out-of-print and are seeking to resurrect their manuscripts to be enjoyed by future generations.

Beginning in 2021, with the exception of fulfilling contracts with existing clients, and our Pocketful book collection, we began focusing almost exclusively on publishing Anthologies and Anthology Series. We have found that this is our niche. For information about how to collaborate on an anthology as a method of outreach and fundraising for your organization, congregation, business or group, email

NOTE: Matrika Press also partners with retreat centers, congregations, non-profit organizations and spiritual groups to create anthologies, scrapbooks and history books. These books are used as fundraisers, publicity and outreach for the organizations in addition to preserving their rich heritage.

We only take on manuscripts that are pre-edited. If you are seeking more detailed editing processes, we recommend:
