Submissions of short books are invited from writers under-represented in the publishing industry

The new initiative, run in partnership with New Writing South and Myriad Editions, is inviting submissions from unpublished poets and fiction writers from the UK who are under-represented in publishing due to mental health, disability, identity or social circumstance.

Six writers will be selected and supported to polish their manuscripts and be published in individual short books by Myriad Editions under a standard publishing contract.

To submit, send original fiction between 8,000 and 10,000 words and poetry (45 pages with 20 lines to a page) in any genre except writing for children or erotica.

Entry is free.

The closing date is 24 February.

For full details, see the website.
