We publish around ten books each year. This means we have to be very selective. We choose books that are excellent and original, and open readers’ eyes to new experiences and new ways of seeing or understanding the world.

We publish contemporary and historical literary fiction; crime, especially psychological and political thrillers with strong female characters; graphic novels that span a variety of genres including memoir and life writing, Graphic Medicine, documentary comics and fiction; and political non-fiction.

We do not publish any of the following: young adult fiction, children’s books, horror, science fiction, fantasy, plays or poetry. Nor do we reissue books that have been previously published or self-published (in print or as ebooks).

Our next window for submissions is 6—20 November. Until then, we are unable to accept new submissions.
