Important Information

Before beginning the manuscript submission process via the portal below, please note:

The Manuscript

You will be required to provide 50 to 100 pages of your manuscript, double-spaced, as a Word document or a PDF. Please don’t send the entire manuscript. Please do not send your manuscript more than once, even if you have revised it since it was first submitted. We accept submissions from ANZ territories only.

Your Work

You will be asked for information about your work, such as the title, whether it's fiction or non-fiction, and the genre (e.g. The Lost Codex: Fiction/Thriller).

Our process

Submitted manuscripts will be considered by members of the editorial, sales, and marketing and publicity teams. Submissions are treated as confidential material.

Response

Due to the large volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to respond to submissions that are unsuccessful. If we are interested in your manuscript you will be advised in writing when your submission has been assessed. If you do not receive a response from us within four months please assume your submission is unsuccessful.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide feedback on unsuccessful submissions.
