Thank you for considering Janklow & Nesbit for your submission. We invest a lot of time and effort into reviewing unsolicited manuscripts and particularly in championing first-time authors, and we would be delighted to hear from you.
Please follow the guidelines below to make it easier for us to review your work. If we are interested in reading or hearing more, you will receive a response within eight weeks from submission.
Please note that we do not accept postal submissions, and that we do not consider screenwriters or scripts.
Please title all documents and your email with your full name and the title of your work for ease of reference. Your submission should be double-spaced, size 12 and in a reasonable font.
If you are submitting fiction, you should include a covering letter, synopsis, and either the first three chapters or the first fifty pages, whichever you feel is appropriate. Your covering letter and synopsis should ideally be no longer than a page each.
If you are submitting poetry, we ask that you submit a short pitch and small sample of 3-5 poems.
If you are submitting non-fiction, you should include a covering letter ideally no longer than a page, a full outline setting out the aims of each chapter, and if possible a sample chapter.
Please include a covering letter in the body of your email and include other components as attachments. We prefer attachments to be in Word, but PDFs are also acceptable. Please note that we cannot open external links in your email for security reasons, so your work must be attached directly to the email.
