Guppy Books

YA OPEN SUBMISSIONS LIVE THIS WEEK!

Between 9am Monday 11th May and 11.59 on Friday 15th May, Guppy Books will open its portholes to all unagented YA writers who have a novel to share.

Please email your submission to submissions@guppybooks.co.uk.

To submit, please include the first three chapters (or 2000 words) of your YA novel, plus a synopsis. (It doesn’t to be precise, near this number will work perfectly.)

Please don’t worry too much/spend much time on the synopsis – we want to see it in order to get a sense of what happens in your story, but we would prefer work go into the novel itself!

Please email as a Word document. Entry is free. One submission per person.

We will shortlist down to a list of ten by June 15th, and a winner will be offered a contract with Guppy Books in the summer. A team of judges will be announced shortly.

Good luck!
