& SHORT STORIES
submissions from 2,500-55,000+ words
Many factors determine whether we proceed to
read your full manuscript... the submission and the quality of
the writing, genre and the storyline.
Our assessment of marketability influences our investment attitude.
Manuscripts must be the author's own work and stories containing scenes or plot lines bearing an obvious resemblance to other published works may breach copyright laws and will
be rejected. Not all manuscripts are of the quality we demand for
publication and we regretfully reject a percentage
The completed, FULL MANUSCRIPT should be forwarded as part of the submission, allowing us to read as much of
your work as we require. Do
not make a submission if your ms is unfinished. Send an enquiry email instead.
Whilst we respond to all
emails, we ordinarily do not provide an assessment or
ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS as an attachment to an email are acceptable.
We do NOT accept paper submissions. You will receive
an initial response.
NOVELETTA manuscripts should exceed
2,500 and be not be more than 65,000+ words.
We often review lesser sized short stories of a
special nature and larger where appropriate.
read most FICTION, thrive on historical and true crime; we love adult and YA
chick-lit or romance and a good short story
always gets us... but we do not read poetry.
