Submissions


We’re delighted to say that we’re open for submissions. If you’d like to submit your work, we’d love to read it!

What are we looking for?
We’re currently considering both non-fiction and fiction with a literary bent, as well as poetry (collections only) and playscripts. Generally speaking we’re not looking for science-fiction, romance or crime – but if you feel your work is literary and only partially defined by one of these categories, please feel free to send it our way.

What is our submissions process?
In order to spare a few trees, we do ask that all submissions are sent via email to submissions@renardpress.com, rather than by post.

Please attach a completed cover letter to tell us what we need to know, and to help us in anonymising your submission.

Please submit just a few chapters from your MS (there’s no need to send us the whole thing at this stage). If you’re submitting poetry, we ask that you submit what you consider a representative sample of the collection.

Will we get back to you? When will we get back to you?
No one wants to be ghosted. You’ve taken the time to get in touch with us, so we will take the time to get back to you.

We have a very open submissions process, which can mean that we occasionally have a huge influx in submissions and take a while to get back to you – and we’re a small team, so please be patient while we read!. We try to reply to submissions within ten weeks, but can sometimes take longer. If you’ve submitted and haven’t heard from us, please check your spam folder, and if you can’t see an email from us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
