Film, TV & Theatre Submissions
All book submissions should be sent via email to
Please submit only one work at a time. If you have written more than one, mention it in your covering letter but send us your strongest work. And please do not send in any original artwork or photographs by post. Due to the volume we receive, we are not always able to confirm receipt of submissions.
We aim to respond in 2 to 4 months but sometimes it takes a while longer. Feel free to check if we have received your submission after 2 months and we will get back to you asap.
Please send all Film, TV & Theatre submissions to
For their separate guidelines, please see here.
We need a good covering letter that is typed, properly constructed and checked for errors in spelling and grammar. Remember this is the first example of your writing we will read. The letter should be concise. One paragraph should be a brief synopsis of your work. For non-fiction, you should add the reasons why you have chosen this subject and why you are suited to write it. We also want to know something about you: why you write; how long you have been writing, whether you write in one genre/category or more. You have to grab our full attention at this stage.
Fiction: Send a one page synopsis of your work. What we do not want is a list of chapter headings (except in some cases for non-fiction) or a list of characters. It should be a summary of what happens in the story with the twists and turns revealed. And please do not leave us guessing as to the outcome - we need to be convinced that you have written a good story, which includes the ending.
Non-fiction: Send a brief outline of the subject of your work, where it would fit in the market, and why you are suited to write it.
