Submission guidelines

Allen & Unwin know how difficult it can be for writers to get their work in front of publishers, which is why we’ve created our innovative and pioneering submissions system – The Friday Pitch.

The Friday Pitch allows for writers of all genres to have their work considered by one of our in-house Submission Editors.

Please select the genre of your work, and follow the links to the appropriate submissions page for more details.

Please note Allen & Unwin only accepts manuscripts correctly submitted through our electronic system. Any hard-copy submissions mailed in will be recycled. Also that, despite its name, The Friday Pitch is open to submissions all week!
