We are looking for prose fiction and poetry of any length in all genres and styles. Our only criterion is quality, which we admit is entirely subjective. Please check the kinds of books we do not publish before making your submission.
All fiction and poetry submissions should be sent in hard copy. Print-outs should have good margins, but you can save some trees and postage costs by printing with single line spacing and on both sides of the paper (duplex).
Please don't send us your only copy, as submissions will not be returned.
We will be assessing your work solely on your writing, so please do not send us your cv, life history or your back story. If we are sufficiently engaged and intrigued by your work, we will ask you to tell us about yourself.
Please send your submission to:
PO Box 428
Armidale NSW 2350
We respond to all submissions. Initial responses are currently taking 4–6 weeks. If you haven't heard from us after 8 weeks please contact us to check whether we received your submission.
If we like your sample, we will contact you to request your full manuscript and more information. It takes longer to make a complete assessment, and response times will vary widely, from a few weeks to six months or more. Please don't contact us to check on our progress – if a requested manuscript doesn't surface within a few weeks we will contact you.
If you find another publisher while waiting to hear from us, please let us know.
