Some notes on submitting manuscripts:

  • Text is broadly interested in publishing fiction and non-fiction, including upper primary and young adult. Please note that we are not accepting poetry or play scripts at present
  • Please send manuscripts hard copy (rather than electronically or on disk), double-sided, and double-spaced. And don’t forget to number the pages
  • Send the first 3 chapters and a brief (1-page) synopsis. If we want to see more we will contact you once we have read the sample
  • Make sure your manuscript has your full contact details, including email address, so we can reach you easily if we need to
  • Do not send original material as it will not be held for collection or be returned
  • Due to the large number of manuscripts we receive and consider we are unable to provide individual editorial advice
  • It takes approximately three months for submissions to be assessed, and it may be longer depending on the volume of submissions. No acknowledgement of receipt will be sent. You will be advised via email when your submission has been assessed
  • Please note: when we receive your manuscript, you will be automatically added to our newsletter subscriber list. If you don’t wish to be a subscriber, please state that clearly on your submission  

 Thank you. We look forward to reading your work.
