Salt publishes around 12 books of contemporary British fiction a year. We have a dedicated team of commissioning editors each responsible for developing a list of high calibre, serious and imaginative writers.
Our team will support you every step of the way: from preparing your manuscript, designing and typesetting it to the highest standards, manufacturing it as a beautiful object, putting it into your hands as a finished book, introducing you to booksellers, festivals, reviewers and readers, and helping you think through new projects as you move forward with your career. We’re there for you.
We will nurture and support you as a writer, promote you extensively to readers on social media and beyond, effectively sell you to national and international bookstores, run publicity campaigns, sell your rights internationally – from print and audio to translations, digital and dramatisations – and develop your brand while protecting your copyright.
Working together as a close team, we will make serious literature seriously exciting, and make your book and your writing life a success.
We are happy to consider unsolicited novel submissions. We especially welcome writers independently recommended by published authors. Before submitting your work, do please carefully consider the following points:
If you are confident you meet these requirements and feel your novel is right for our list, please email us attaching a synopsis and the whole completed manuscript in MS Word to email@example.com

Please note we are only accepting submissions of novels.
For manuscript assessment and editorial advice, you might also consider services like The Literary Consultancy.

We wish you every success with your novel and all your writing.
