Submissions

Thank you to everyone who submitted their words to us. We are overwhelmed with the response and quality. Submissions are now closed for our 2020-2022 program. If you do not hear from us by October, we have not accepted your manuscript. This does not mean your work isn't great, it just means it's not right for us and we encourage you to keep submitting.

 

Submissions will be open from February 1st through to May 31 for our 2020-2021 program. Please follow our guidelines below.
