Manuscript Submission Guidelines

Grattan Street Press aims to publish a range of work including contemporary literature, trade non-fiction, and children’s books. If you have something brilliant hiding in your desk drawer that doesn’t fit that bracket, don’t let that deter you.

When submitting long-form pieces or manuscripts, please include the following:

  • The first three chapters of your manuscript (or a maximum excerpt of 12,000 words)
  • A short summary of the complete work
  • A brief author CV
