Call for Submissions: Novels

[Submission window: 1st December 2015 – 1st March 2016]


In 2017 Influx Press would like to publish two novels. We wish to receive completed manuscripts or proposals. We welcome work from emerging writers and established authors alike.

We want work that investigates and interrogates culture and life under-represented in mainstream literary output - like all of our previous, non-novel publications.

We are particularly interested in submissions from BAME writers and those from low income or marginalised backgrounds.

We want exciting, original stories of characters and places that make us see things in a new light, see things from a different perspective, encourage us to think in other ways.

If you would like to send a proposal please email Kit on You must already have some work published so we can assess your writing as well as your ideas.

If you would like to send a manuscript submission please send a synopsis and the first 30 pages of your book to, marked ‘Novel Submission’.

We welcome submissions through agents and writers without agents.

We look forward to reading your work!

Kit and Gary, Influx Press
