How to submit your work
Currently our lists are closed as we catch up on reading, but we will all be considering new submissions again between 12–20 November 2022 (during for Book Week Scotland). Check our website again in August for details of our forthcoming ‘Working with an Agent’ workshops, and one-to-one pitch sessions.
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.
