Liberties Press is committed to publishing high-quality work from new, emerging and established authors. We accept unsolicited submissions for non-fiction, fiction and poetry throughout the year.
UNESCO reports that almost 500,000 new books are published in the United States and the United Kingdom combined every year. In this environment, a publisher provides a unique and important service to the author: helping their voice be heard in a crowded marketplace. This process may involve extensive editorial, promotion and design work, among other things. Perhaps unfortunately, all of these things cost money. Liberties Press, which currently receives no public funding, charges to consider a manuscript for publication. This fee is currently €750 (including VAT at 21%).
Submissions should be in digital format (although we also accept submissions in hard copy), with a minimum of three chapters (though preferably the full manuscript), a synopsis, and a covering letter. If sending in hard copy, please do not include original photographs, documents or illustrations, as we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage of such items. A report, covering the content, writing style and marketability of the work, will then be prepared by Liberties Press, and supplied to the author within six weeks of the submission.
We have a hard-earned reputation as an innovative publisher of high-quality books. Over the years, we have received thousands of submissions, and have successfully published several hundred new titles. We hope that authors will think carefully before submitting material to us, and to value the work that we do.
We look forward to receiving your submission. Please contact us via the email contact form if you have any queries; we aim to respond to all queries within one working day.
