General Call for Submissions:

Manifold Press is in the process of relaunching and will begin publishing again in January 2019. For the near future the Press will be specialising in Queer Historical (all aspects of LGBTQ+).

We seek fiction in a range of genres grounded in historical realities that finds space for LGBTQ+ and non-traditional protagonists (we will consider historical fantasy set in this world, but we are not at this stage taking fiction set in fantastical worlds).We are actively committed to Diverse Publishing.

We want:
Novels: 50k +
Short stories for our newsletter: maximum 7500 words.

At this stage we are particularly keen to consider complete manuscripts for 2019, but will also consider works in progress for the future.

We will be publishing in e-book format only.

Please submit cover letter, synopsis and first three chapters to:
Unagented manuscripts welcome.
