for writers and readers….

They say they particularly welcome submissions from women, BAME, disabled, working class and LGBTQ+ writers.
What they don’t want: books for children, anything that’s been published before and that includes self-published either as a regular book or in e-book format.
What you need to send: your entire, final, edited manuscript in MS Word, along with a covering letter which includes your contact details and a short description of your manuscript.
