Got an unpublished science fiction, fantasy or horror novel? UK genre publisher Gollancz will be accepting un-agented submissions throughout January!
Starting January 4th (Monday!) through January 22nd, the publisher will be accepting novel submissions. Here’s the trick: you have to mail it in.
Here’s their criteria:
- Submissions will be open 4th to 22th January 2016. Only submissions with valid postdates will be considered.
- We will only be accepting PHYSICAL submissions.
- We will only consider SF, Fantasy, Horror or YA Crossover novels. They must be complete and more than 80,000 words.
- We will consider previously self-published works.
- We will not consider works we have previously rejected.
- We will not consider works sent in by agents, or by authors who already have representation – they can be submitted in the normal way.
- We are not currently looking for short story collections or anthologies.
- The first 50 pages of your manuscript
- A cover letter outlining the scope and concept of your work
- A full synopsis (no more than 1 page, can be single spaced)
- Single or double-sided.
- Please use standard fonts (comic-sans is liable to make our eyes bleed!)
