*Please note we are currently not accepting submissions*


If you’ve got this far, then you probably have a pretty good idea of what we’re doing!  If not, please look around. Like most publishers the majority of our books comes via agents but we are not against a targeted approach with ideas that suit our list of narrative fiction and non-fiction.

It’s a good idea to discuss any potential submissions first (for both our sakes): send us an email and we’ll endeavour to give you a quick response to your first contact. 


You’ll get a better response if you’ve taken into account what we do publish and whether what you’ve written could fit with us. (Just a tip.) We only publish 15 new books a year so opportunities are limited.

Once we have asked to see material please bear with us – we have an extremely large number of submissions, and while we do our best to be speedy we are a small unit, please allow 3-4 weeks for a response. Please note we do not publish the following:  genre fiction, crime or true crime, practical non-fiction, children’s, YA or poetry.

Thank you & good luck with your writing.
