Manuscript Submission Guidelines
Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group welcomes submissions pertaining to music and the performing arts.
As a first step in submitting a manuscript, we recommend that you send a book proposal consisting of:
Generally, we ask authors to submit book proposals early in the writing process as this allows us to give editorial advice during the development phase and cuts down the amount of revisions needed later.
Due to the large volume of submissions, you may not receive a response from us. If you wish to have the materials you submit returned to you, please so indicate and include return postage.
Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group does not accept any songs, sheet music, musical scores, music manuscripts, or recordings for publication consideration.
Very best wishes for the success of your writing project.
