Submissions

WE ARE OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS!

 

PlotForge periodically accepts direct submissions from writers. If you wish to have your work considered by PlotForge during one of those periods, please follow these instructions:

What we are and are not seeking:

  • We will only consider only full-length (i.e., over 70,000 words) novels. We do not accept short stories, novellas, anthologies, or non-fiction.
  • We will consider works in most genres as well as literary or near-literary works. We do not publish romance (plenty of other great small presses for that) or experimental fiction.
  • To be published by PlotForge, works must have good pacing and tension, and be well written. Good plotting is a must.
  • We will consider, on a case-by-case basis, previously self-published works if it meets our other criteria and has not been widely distributed.

How and What to submit:

  • Email our acquisition editor, Suzanne @ PlotForge.com.
  • In the email, provide a short pitch for your work, the word-count of the work, ¬†how it meets the criteria above, and any other works of yours that are currently published.
  • Attach a .pdf of approximately the first thirty pages.

What to expect:

  • We intend to get back to you. Sometimes, things slip through the cracks. If you haven’t heard back from us in a month, feel free to send another email to prod us along.
