Salt publishes around 20 books of contemporary British fiction a year. We have a small, dedicated team of commissioning editors who can each only consider and develop a handful of titles. Because of this, we’re sorry to say we cannot accept unsolicited submissions directly from writers.
We are happy to receive submissions through your agent. We are also happy to consider novels personally recommended to us by existing Salt authors. Before arranging to submit, do please carefully consider the following points:
Please note that we are no longer commissioning adult or children's poetry, biography or autobiography, memoirs, plays or literary critical works. We do not publish illustrated books. We do not reissue self-published eBooks.
