We receive a very large number of manuscripts for consideration. Of these we publish on average two a year that have been sent to us unsolicited. The vast majority of our new titles are commissioned work.
If you are considering sending a manuscript to us, please take a look at our website to ensure that your manuscript fits within our list of publications.
How to make your submission:
Please send by post a short, typed synopsis together with one or two chapters of your work. If you are submitting music for consideration, you will need to send a portfolio of eight pieces so that our Editorial Committee can assess your work and style. The address is as follows:

When submitting your work, please remember to include a short covering letter, your name, address and email address if you have one. We regret that manuscripts cannot be returned even if a stamped addressed envelope is enclosed.
It will be at least 12 weeks before you hear whether we are interested in your manuscript and due to the number of manuscripts we receive, we regret that we are unable to give specific feedback on your submission.
If you have not heard from us within 4 months, please assume that your submission has not been successful.
We do not accept submissions by telephone.
