Welcome to NCTE's Book Publishing Program - Previous Revision


For over seventy-five years, the NCTE Books Program has published resources for teachers' professional development at every level, elementary through college. We release 12 to 15 books each year.

NCTE books focus on current issues and problems in teaching, research findings and their application to classrooms, ideas for teaching all aspects of English, and other topics.

The complete list features over 300 titles, so you're sure to find a professional resource that will enrich your teaching. Browse our online store for more information, including sample chapters and tables of contents for most books. You may also phone NCTE's Customer Service department toll free at 877-369-6283 (fax: 217-328-9645).

NCTE members get a discount of up to 30% off the nonmember prices. Not yet a member? Learn how to join NCTE.


We publish several popular book series, including the NCTE-Routledge Research Series, the NCTE High School Literature Series, and the Theory and Research Into Practice (TRIP) series.


Interested in writing a book? By publishing with NCTE, you join a community of professionals who have served and shaped the profession through their research, teaching, and scholarship. NCTE book authors:


  • receive thoughtful and constructive reviews of their manuscripts
  • work closely with experienced NCTE editorial staff who ensure that you are happy with the process and proud of the result
  • earn royalties that are competitive with those offered by other academic and commercial publishers
  • are considered for further professional opportunties, such as joining NCTE's Professional Development Consulting Network or writing lesson plans for ReadWriteThink, our award-winning online resource for reading and language arts instruction 

Although we're proud of our publications, we are not a vanity press. All projects undergo rigorous peer review by experts in the field. We don't typically publish anthologies or single-authored works of creative writing, personal journals, student writing, or dissertations not revised for book publication.
