Jenny's list

Jenny Brown

I will next be considering submissions 12–20 November. I will be looking for fiction (literary, reading group fiction and crime writing) and narrative non-fiction from writers based in Scotland.

Lucy's list

Lucy Juckes portrait

I will next be considering submissions from writers and illustrators for children and YA between 12–20 November.

Lisa's list

Lisa Highton

I will next be considering submissions 12–20 November. I will be looking for submissions from writers based in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. I am interested in a wide variety of narrative fiction (not YA or fantasy) and non-fiction, those distinctive stories from natural storytellers. I love books that have emotional resonance, a sense of place and purpose.
