NewSouth Books publishes quality works of non-fiction, fiction, and poetry, with a special interest in regional history, biography, autobiography, non-fiction, folklore, African American, Native American, and civil rights subjects.

The main NewSouth imprint also publishes quality illustrated and non-illustrated works of fiction and non-fiction for young readers. We are especially interested in biographies of African Americans and in concise, interesting books that make understandable to young readers such complex subjects as slavery, segregation, the Civil War, the civil rights movement, and human rights. We are primarily but not exclusively interested in Southern people and Southern settings. We are more likely to publish chapter books than picture books, but will look at the latter if on the subjects mentioned above.
