Submissions Policy
Invisible publishes contemporary literary fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction. All narrative works with contemporary themes will be considered, however, we are not interested in children’s or YA projects, historical fiction, memoirs, or self-help books. We’re committed to publishing diverse voices and experiences, and acknowledge historical and systemic barriers that exist in publishing, along with the limits of our existing catalogue. Given these, we strongly encourage LGBTQ2SIA+, Indigenous and writers of colour to submit their work. We want to help get your stories out into the world. Submissions must be made using the form below. We require the following documents in .doc, .pdf, or .odt formats: • A dated query letter • C.V. • Author statement/synopsis • The full manuscript; please format all file names according to the convention “LastnameProjectTitle.doc” or “LastnameCV.doc” We will only consider one manuscript per author at a time. Multiple submissions will be deleted. If you need to withdraw or update your submission, get in touch with us at submissions [at] invisiblepublishing [dot] com. Submissions emailed directly to this account will, you guessed it, be deleted. Invisible Publishing is an intimately run independent publisher. Please allow sufficient time (measured in months) for us to evaluate and respond to your submission. We look forward to reading your work!
