Publishers Association The Society of Authors


Works of fiction should be complete prior to submission. In the case of non-fiction, three chapters should be available as an absolute minimum.

Submissions should take the form of a single word-processed document, in A4, with a .doc or .rtf file suffix. This should be numbered from beginning to end, with your email address at the foot of each page.

The document should contain the following items, in this particular order:

  • The first three chapters
    • without chapter titles, book title or author name
  • A synopsis
    • including working title
    • without author name
  • An autobiographical statement
    • including your name and contact details
    • your previous written work
    • your plans for the future

Please make initial submissions by email.
If you send a manuscript by post, add a stamped addressed envelope; if you don't, it will be recycled.
