MA writers, we're waiting

Posted by Yvonne Barlow on Friday, January 6, 2017
So we're at it again!
A new year means new submissions. It's an exciting time for us, and I have to confess I love to see the manuscripts arrive in our email box. Why? Because the novels are all so different - the creativity among new writers makes my heart race with excitement. I'm not sure if other publishers feel this excitement - I hope they do.
So bring it on - all writers who are engaged in or have graduated from an MA writing programme, send us your early chapters. We'll ensure the work is read by book groups and serious readers.
Please polish your work - make it flow. Readers will give up if they feel the early chapters are rough or unclear. As debut writers, you don't have a previous body of published work that readers loved. As a result, they are unwilling to give you the benefit of doubt when it comes to hazy or unclear scenes.
Send us your best, we're waiting.
