Submissions

We welcome submissions from literary agents. From 1 st July 2020 we will be
reopening our submissions inbox to unagented writers.

We publish contemporary fiction, crime, travel, memoir and narrative non-fiction. Our LGBTQI list republishes classic works of queer literature together with new work. We do not publish childrens’, YA, fantasy, sci-fi or poetry. We occasionally publish short story collections but we do not publish novellas. Please check that your book meets our criteria before submitting.

We do consider everything sent to us but it could take up to 4 months for us to respond. From time to time it may be necessary for us to close submissions whilst we catch up with reading.

For fiction we prefer to see entire manuscripts. Non-fiction proposals should include a minimum of the first three chapters. Please send all submissions by email in a word file with a note of word count, synopsis and a cv/biography of the author. 

Send submissions to info@muswell-press.co.uk

We are not able to offer editorial advice but recommend the organisations below who can help.
