ALM is currently accepting unsolicited submissions.
Please read the following guidelines carefully before you send your work to us as there are some restrictions on the manuscripts we will look at.
Your work should not currently be considered by another agent or by a publisher when you make a submission to ALM.
We do not look at work that has already been rejected by a number of publishers.
At this time we are not looking at children’s books by unpublished authors, science fiction, anything in the self-help genre, plays, poetry or screenplays.
We do not accept submissions from authors who are not Australian residents.
We do not consider work that has been self-published in either hard copy or as an e-book.
We do not look at work that is only partly completed.
Submissions should be sent to email@example.com.
Please attach a 1-2page synopsis of your work.
Please include in your cover email a little background information on yourself and the manuscript, noting also the word count on your completed manuscript.
Once we have received your synopsis we will then let you know within two weeks if we would be interested in reviewing the first two chapters of your work.
We will then endeavour to let you know within a four week period if we would like to read the full manuscript. As we receive many submissions, if we have not come back to you within four weeks please do send us a friendly reminder email.
All attached work should be formatted as a Word Doc or a PDF and should be set out with 1.5 spacing.
If you have any questions at all about the above process feel free to contact us.
