Unfortunately, we only consider complete manuscripts. However, if you would like some help or inspiration with your writing please have a look at our some of our Workshops
No, we cannot accept proposals, but if you’d like to discuss a proposal why not pop along to one of our Creative Network Opportunities and chat to us about it. A dose of inspiration is sometimes all you need to get you going with your manuscript. You never know where it might lead.
Yes, we do accept self-published submissions, as long as you hold the publication rights.
No, we accept manuscripts from authors all over the world, regardless of where the author lives – as long as the work is in the English language, we’re really experienced publishers but our foreign language skills are strictly limited to holiday level French and Italian
No, we only accept one submission per author at a time. Sorry about that, but we want as many different voices as possible to have a go at submitting their work.
Yes. Literary Agents can follow the same submission guidelines, clearly stating who they represent. We are a happy bunch and would love to work with happy literary agents
No, unfortunately our offices are very small and we don’t have room for too many hard copy submissions. All work needs to be sent electronically, through the prescribed routes.
All manuscripts submitted according to the rules will receive an acknowledgement. We aim to respond to you within 3 months, however we have limited resources so please be understanding if we don’t get back to you within that time period.
