Interesting new for aspiring authors out there who are looking for somewhere to submit their manuscripts. Orion is launching a new digital-first commercial fiction imprint called Dash this autumn.
The venture, which aims to “connect readers with stories, fast” will publish across all fiction genres including romance, comedy, suspense, historical tales and thought-provoking novels about the modern world.
Dash is looking for more authors from across the storytelling world, including UK and Ireland, India, South Africa, Australia and the US.
Submissions are now open to both represented and independent writers, who can send a synopsis, one-line pitch and complete manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org.
