Fledgling Press Submissions
Added 29 Dec 2020
Accepting submissions of Novels

Authors are asked to send in a sample – the first 3 chapters and a one page synopsis of your book, by email only. We do not accept paper submissions or previously self-published work and these will be disposed of unread. No returns.

Please note we do not publish poetry, novellas, fantasy novels, and we no longer publish children's picture books.

We aim to read initial submissions within 6 weeks of receiving them. If we like what we see, we will then ask to read your full manuscript. After reading your manuscript we will decide whether we will consider the manuscript for publication.

Should we decide not to take your manuscript any further we will always try to provide constructive feedback although we can't always give you detailed reasons for our decisions. All decisions are final and no further correspondence will be entered into after this stage.

If we do wish to proceed with your work we will discuss fully our plans and timescales fully with you and at that point offer you a contract to publish.

Please be aware that agreeing to read your initial submission or the full manuscript does not constitute an offer to publish.

You can view a selection of the books we publish by visiting our online bookshop. If you wish to purchase one of our titles we are happy to offer you a new visitor discount using code WRITER150 at checkout.

Ghost City Review
Added 11 Dec 2020
Accepting submissions of Articles Poetry and Short Stories

Ghost City Review welcomes submissions of poems, short stories, flash fiction, personal essays, adventure narratives, journal entries, short plays, monologues, translations, photographs, oil paintings, watercolors, sculptures, dioramas…. pretty much anything you can think of. We want to see it all. Show us what you’ve created.

We’re looking for new work from both emerging and established authors and artists. To get an idea of what kind of work we tend to publish, look through our previous volumes and decide whether your work would be a good fit. We do not believe in silent rejections, so you're sure to receive a response to all submissions. Our response time is around 1 - 3 months, but we usually get to the submissions sooner. If you don't hear from us within 3 months, please feel free to reach out to us at ghostcitypress@gmail.com. 

RIGHTS

Ghost City acquires first publication rights, but you, the writer, still own your work. What this means is that we hold the publication rights for 30 days after you work is posted online. After 30 days, you are free to publish and submit your work elsewhere. We kindly ask for acknowledgment for subsequent reprints of your work.

PAYMENT

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide payment for publication in Ghost City Review. One of our long term goals is to reach that point. 

GENERAL GUIDELINES

  • We DO NOT accept any work that has been previously published in a literary & arts journal or on an online blog. This does not include your personal blogs and social media sites, however, we do ask that you take the work down before you submit it to us for consideration.

  • We do accept simultaneous submissions. We even encourage them and wish you luck in getting your work published, but please notify our editors of this when submitting. Also be sure to immediately notify us if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

  • We do ask that you limit your submissions to three pieces per submission. If you wish, these can be works from three different mediums (i.e., a poem, a short story, and a watercolor painting).

  • Ghost City Review runs on a rolling submissions schedule, so feel free to submit your work at any time. We usually cut off submissions several weeks before the release of each issue. Anything not sent in time will be considered for the following month's issue.

  • Please include a short bio with your submission. There is no need for a formal cover letter, just a simple "hello friends!" will suffice.
