YOU DO NOT NEED AN AGENT TO SUBMIT A BOOK TO US FOR A TRADITIONAL PUBLISHING DEAL WITH EYEWEAR OR BLACK SPRING PRESS; WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU TO PAY A CENT TO BE TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED, AND WILL EVEN PAY SMALL ADVANCES. WE DISTRIBUTE OUR BOOKS WORLDWIDE, ESPECIALLY IN THE UK, IRELAND AND THE USA.
As a small press run by writers and creatives, we know how important it is to keep an open door policy, even if it sometimes may appear only somewhat ajar. So many presses nowadays only read work sent by agents, or by famous writers.
The Black Spring Press Group seeks to balance the reality that we cannot read thousands of submissions a year easily, with the need to give every budding author a chance, since the history of publishing is replete with rejected geniuses who deserved better.
To that end, we run professionally judged competitions across the year, and the best way to submit is through one of them - check the page here to see IF ANY ARE LIVE AT THE MOMENT.
Meanwhile, you can write to us AS EDITORS at firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the large volume of emails we receive, we may not be able to reply to each one RIGHT AWAY.
