Attention budding cookbook authors

If you are a cookbook lover, chances are you have considered writing your own cookbook. Maybe your friends suggested it or you came up with an idea for a spectacular layout while struggling to cook from a poorly designed book. But even though many of us have likely toyed with the idea, we have shrugged it off because it requires resources beyond our reach.

That’s where Page Street Publishing comes in. The company has joined forces with cookbook author Kimberly Yorio to create a contest in which the grand prize is a contract to write a cookbook for Page Street. The campaign is the brainchild of Page Street’s publisher and editor-in-chief Will Kiester. “I am an optimist,” said Kiester. “I believe that hidden in great kitchens across the nation are people whose cooking is so good that it should be collected, curated and presented.”

If you think you’ve got what it takes, there is a long list of requirements: You must put together a proposal that includes: a description of the cookbook, an explanation of how the book will distinguish itself from others, your biography, a table of contents, a list of 15 different recipes, and details about the marketing power you’ll bring via social media and other platforms. The deadline to enter is August 1, so there’s no time to waste if you are interested in entering.

    If you have all of that stuff, what do you need the publisher for, exactly?
