Submissions

We strongly suggest that you seek representation by a literary agent, and recommend that you consult the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook published by Bloomsbury for more information on these and their specialisms. However, should you wish to submit a proposal directly to us for our consideration, please email the following to info@duckworth-publishers.co.uk:

  • a covering letter, outlining your proposal
  • full synopsis of the book
  • three sample chapters
  • your CV or short biography

We endeavour to respond by email to every submission within 12 weeks, but please bear with us: we receive a large number of submissions every week, and inevitably some periods will be busier than others.

Please do not send physical copies of your manuscript without calling us first to discuss; note, too, that we are unable to return manuscripts. We cannot accept responsibility for material sent to us, so please don't send a unique copy of your work, and always retain the original of anything you submit.
