The Word x Bookouture Submissions

Our submissions inbox will open at 12.00am MST on Wednesday 20 January 2021(7.00am GMT) and the deadline for submissions is 11.59pm MST on Saturday 20 February 2021(6.59am GMT on Sunday 21 February 2021).*
*If you are not able to submit to us at this time, we would still love to read your work via the usual submissions platform on our website. However, please note that while we respond to all submissions and give feedback where we can, beyond February, we will not be able to give the same detailed editorial feedback.
Thank you for your interest, unfortunately this submission partnership has now closed. You can still submit your manuscript to us via our regular submission form at:
  • Please enter the name you will be publishing under.
  • What’s the blurb for your book – can you sell it to us in a few paragraphs?
  • Provide a brief author biography, including any information that will be relevant to your submission.
  • Accepted file types: pdf, doc, docx, rtf.
    Submit up to 10,000 words of your manuscript. One at a time, please! (If you want to submit more, you can do that in a new submission.) We only accept the following file formats: pdf, doc, docx, rtf.
  • Accepted file types: pdf, doc, docx, rtf.
    Send us a summary of your manuscript.
    If you weren't successful this time but we enjoy your writing, we'd love to be able to talk to you about submitting your next book to us.
  • This is really useful for us to continue to grow and to make sure we’re reaching out to authors effectively.
