Like many publishers, we are unable to accept direct submissions from authors. However, once in a while we hold an open submissions period, during which you can send your work to us for assessment and possibly future publication. Last time we did this we found Andrea Bennett and Jon Teckman.

The dates for the next open period are not yet decided, but keep an eye on this site, or our Twitter @BoroughPress, where they will be announced.

Outside of the open period, all our books are acquired through literary agents. An agent will advise you about all aspects of publishing, tell you what to expect from your publisher, and also get you a much better deal for your book than you could negotiate yourself!

You can find advice on how to get an agent here.
