If your work is full-length commercial or literary fiction or non-fiction, we would be pleased to receive the first two chapters and a synopsis. Please double-space your manuscript and use a standard font such as Times New Roman or Courier New. Include some relevant biographical detail too, please, such as any history of previous publication, or experience related to the subject about which you are writing.
For TV or film work, please send a sample episode or section of the script, which should conform to industry standard formatting and layout. Include some details of your writing background and which producers/production companies, if any, have already seen the material you’re sending.
If you are sending us hard copies, please make sure that you have kept a copy of everything you send. Whilst every care will be taken of your work, we cannot be held responsible for loss or damage.
