History

Holt, Rinehart & Winston has a long distinguished history in educational and non-fiction publishing dating back to the Reconstruction South. But HR&W also produced some notable fiction, including "Cat's Cradle" by Kurt Vonnegut and "Friday" by Robert Heinlein.

Henry Holt and Company participated in a merger in 1960 to become Holt, Rinehart and Winston. CBS purchased the company in 1967, but in 1985 the group split, and the retail publishing arm along with the Holt name was sold to the Georg von Holtzbrinck Publishing Group based in Stuttgart and the name changed back to Henry Holt & Company.

The educational publishing arm was sold to the Harcourt Education division of Harcourt Brace Jovanovich and retained the Holt, Rinehart & Winston name. When owner Reed Elsevier sold Harcourt to Houghton Mifflin in 2008, the education line of Holt, Rinehart and Winston was combined with McDougal Littell to form Holt McDougal.


Submission Details

Due to the overwhelming number of unsolicited manuscripts, proposals and query letters we receive daily, it is our house policy not to read them. We do not accept responsibility for loss or damage to, or return of, unsolicited manuscripts; unsolicited materials you send to us will be recycled or otherwise discarded.

We regret that we cannot read your material. If you would like additional information about publishers and literary agencies that do read unsolicited manuscripts, we recommend that you consult Literary Marketplace, a reference work published annually and available in many public libraries.

Good luck placing your work, and thanks again for thinking of Henry Holt and Company.
