Hawkins Publishing Group utilizes an Acquisition Review Board (ARB) to review submissions received from prospective authors seeking publication. The Acquisition Review Board provides professional input and feedback on works submitted. The Board helps determine whether submissions are appropriate and in harmony with our mission to, "Publish quality works that explore innovative and creative writing techniques of diverse aspiring writers of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry."
ARB Members consist of a collaborative group of authors & professionals with a wide range of expertise. Members serve by invitation only.
