before submitting work to substancebooks

please be aware that it can take up to a month for us to respond to your submission. have mercy. we’re passionate, but too poor to afford nano-implants at this stage;

make sure you’re familiar with the kind of work we focus on. The only way to do this is to buy and READ a title from our catalogue;

submit original, unpublished work only;

no dual submissions – do not submit work to us and other publishers/publications simultaneously;

electronic (text): send submissions in the form of MS Word documents (do not use fancy formatting – script fonts, page borders, colours etc); send no more than 6000 words (if we like what we’ve read, we’ll ask for more);

electronic (images): no more than one 2000KB high-res scan (if you’ve got more, and we like what you’ve sent, we’ll ask for more);
