submissions

We are currently focusing on great books for young adults and adults written by Black British writers only.

We are not currently looking for non-fiction, picture books or children's books for under 12 years old.

We have an open submission policy. This means you don't need an agent to submit to us.

We are currently only looking to publish Black British authors.

FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS

Please send

1. The first three chapters of your manuscript, in font Times New Roman, font size 12, double spaced. Just the first 3 chapters regardless of how long or short they are

2. A one-page (maximum) author biography including social media links

3. A pitch - just a couple of sentences, like a blurb of the book or elevator pitch. Imagine you find yourself in a lift with one of us - what would you tell us about your book that would make us want to contact you again once you get out of the lift?

4. A synopsis - tell us your story line, crucial parts in the story and the ending

If we are interested in your book we will be in touch within four weeks.

If you don't hear from us unfortunately it's a no. We may be able to offer feedback and if we can, we will.
