What Kregel is looking for
Through every format and for every age, Kregel is passionate about helping believers grow spiritually with resources that fit their specific needs. We publish a variety of genres, from fiction (Regency, historical, mystery) and non-fiction to Bibles, academic, and ministry resources (except for Sunday school curriculum). We are looking for non-fiction titles that hit a felt need, from authors who have a trustmark and credentials to speak into issues and equip readers with practical application at the intersection of life and faith. Specifically seeking an author team who speak and write about marriage as well as unique approaches to juvenile non- fiction. Kregel is an independent publisher, and we are not afraid of tough or unique topics. Our six key distinctives: trusted, biblically based, family owned, agile, bookstore savvy, and we co-publish in Spanish. Looking forward to connecting with you!
