Well we can tell you’ve been busy this year. Since we opened our submissions at the beginning of the year, we have received more than 900 manuscripts – that’s just over 100 a month!
As I’m sure you can all imagine, this makes for a lot of reading for our two editors, who are also very busy working on live projects with our current authors. We can barely move for manuscripts, and it is for this reason that we’ve now made the decision to close our submissions.
This means that, unfortunately, we will be unable to consider any email submissions received after the 1st of October, and we will not consider any postal manuscripts postmarked after this date either.
Over the next few months, we will be working to catch up with our backlog, and getting back to authors of manuscripts we found promising. We still can’t guarantee a response to every manuscript, so don’t feel that you have to wait before sending your manuscript on to other publishing companies. It’s our loss if we don’t get to your manuscript before it gets snapped up elsewhere!
Keep an eye on our website and social media though: that way you’ll be the first to know if we reopen our submissions.
