Text Publishing: Now Accepting Manuscript Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone

Text Publishing in an Australian press that has published a wide variety of best sellers. They have won the small publisher of the year award three times. You can get a feel for what they publish here. One of their biggest hits in recent years is the internationally bestselling novel The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion (the first in a series of Rosie novels).

They are open to a wide variety of submissions but they do not consider poetry or plays. They don’t publish picture books or early readers. They do publish middle grade readers and books aimed at young adults.

Text Publishing has excellent distribution in Australia. Their covers are wonderful and their website is well organized and intuitive to use.

They are open to direct submissions and try to respond to all submissions within three months, although according to the notice at the top of their submission guidelines they are taking longer to respond at the moment. All submissions must be made through the post.

All they want to be mailed to them initially is a one page synopsis of the novel and the first three chapters.  Work should be 1.5 or double spaced and preferably double sided. The manuscript must contain full contact details.
