Submissions

We publish contemporary fiction, crime, travel, biography and memoir. Our LGBTQI list republishes classic works of queer literature together with new work. We do not publish childrens’ books, YA, fantasy, sci-fi or poetry. We occasionally publish short story collections but we do not publish novellas. Novels should be over 50,000 words. 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 we may need to close submissions while we catch up with reading.

For fiction we’d like to see the entire manuscript, no work in-progress. Non-fiction proposals should include an outline of the book with a minimum of three chapters. Please send all submissions by email in a word file with a note of word count, a short synopsis and a cv/biography of the author.  Submissions that do not meet our criteria will not be responded to.
