Submissions to Affirm Press
Affirm Press welcomes submissions from both authors and agents. We look at all genres as long as the book aligns with our ethos.
For non-fiction, we are interested in most subjects that have a market, BUT, you'll need to make a compelling case for why your book would have a positive impact and how it would influence by delight.
For fiction, we're interested in new and under-published authors, and building long-term creative relationships. We like to think we distinguish ourselves through editorial commitment to authors. We will consider both literary and genre fiction.
Please allow a minimum of twelve weeks for a response.
Guidelines are as follows:
Via email, please include:
- A short synopsis of the manuscript, plus, if your submission is non-fiction, a short chapter-by-chapter outline.
- The first three chapters of your manuscript attached as a Word file (don't send the whole thing unless we specifically request it).
- An author bio and past publishing credits, if any.
- Let us know why you think you'd be a good fit with Affirm Press.
We only accept email submissions. If you're punching out your masterpiece on the typewriter, sorry, you'll have to scan it. It's the future.
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.
Send your submissions to: email@example.com. Please address non-fiction submissions to Martin Hughes, fiction to Rebecca Starford.
