The current submission window for The Lilliput Press is open until 31 October 2020. After this date, they will not accept submissions until the next submission window in 2021.
Postal submissions cannot be accepted. Submissions should be sent by email rather than by post.
- The books published by The Lilliput Press are all broadly focused on Irish themes. Please bear this in mind when considering us for submission.
- Please email email@example.com and include the following:
- A cover letter introducing yourself, including your contact details.
- A one-page synopsis of your work.
- Either the full work or three sample chapters (these don’t need to be consecutive). All pages must be numbered.
- The Lilliput Press receives hundreds of submissions every year. We endeavour to give time and attention to all of them, but please allow up to 6 months for a response.
- Please do not send us original copies of photographs or manuscripts, especially as postal submissions are not currently accepted.
- If your work is progressed on to the next stage, you may be asked to provide a printed manuscript of your work. At that point, you will be provided with an active postal address.
- The Lilliput Press is currently not accepting genre literature, such as children’s literature, crime fiction or science fiction.
