Please also include information about the story, such as genre and word count. Please advise us here if the story contains adult content.

All attached files should be in a .doc or .docx format. The file should include the submission’s title: ‘Novel Name.doc’ for the manuscript, and ‘Novel Name Synopsis’ for the synopsis.
On the first page of both the manuscript and synopsis, please include the following information:

  • Author’s real name
  • Author’s pen name (if different to the above)
  • Submission title

On the first page of the manuscript only, please also include:

  • Address

  • Left-justified text with indented paragraphs. Please don’t manually tab each paragraph.
  • Do not manually number pages – use the header and footer if pages are numbered.
