Publishing opportunity: fiction submissions call from Borough Press

f8cb9cc0-b501-4dba-8d9d-a0e1860d2cd9

The Borough Press has teamed up with The Good Literary Agency for submissions for unagented BAME writers, with the winner receiving a £10,000 publishing contract, representation from The Good Agency and mentoring from writer Nikesh Shukla (pictured).

Borough Press assistant editor Ore Agbaje-Williams said: ‘The different backgrounds and heritages of our society are under-represented in various areas across the media, including publishing, and The Borough Press is hugely committed to enabling more of these voices to be heard.'

The open submission period is for literary and literary-commercial novels by BAME writers not represented by a literary agent. Send the first three chapters, or up to fifty pages, of an unpublished novel (no more than 10,000 words); a 500-word synopsis plus a one-paragraph summary of the novel; a short list of the main characters and a one-page author biography.

Send three doc attachments (manuscript, synopsis and author biography) in a single email, including full contact details and ethnicity in the body of the email.

The closing date is 31 March.
