Influx Press invites writers to submit novels, short story collections and non-fiction proposals to our editors, Gary, Kit and Sanya. We welcome work from both agented and unagented writers.

We are looking for original, exciting literary work that pushes linguistic and thematic boundaries. We want experimental, playful work. We encourage political writing and/or work set in a specific geographic location. We love writing from and about subjects that remain under-explored in mainstream literature.

This submission window is open to all, but we urge writers of colour to send us their work and we also encourage women authors to submit their work.

Before sending us your work please check our list to see what sort of work we publish. We are open to surprises, but it is helpful for us to know that you have considered our publishing tastes before sending something in.

For novels, we want manuscripts of 30,000 words and above. Please send a synopsis and the first 50 pages.

For short story collections, 20,000 to 70,000 words. Please send an outline of the stories in the book and four completed stories.

For non-fiction proposals, please send a treatment, sample chapters and evidence of previous writing.

Formatting: Font size 12, Times New Roman, double spaced.

We will not be able to get back to you immediately, as we are a small team, so please be patient.

Please send all submissions to:

We look forward to reading your work!
