ALM IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS UNTIL 1 JULY 2023. THE GUIDELINES BELOW WILL APPLY WHEN WE RE-OPEN OUR BOOKS IN THE NEW FINANCIAL YEAR. ANY MATERIAL SENT BEFORE 1 JULY WILL NOT BE READ.
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At this time we are not looking at children’s books by unpublished authors, science fiction, fantasy, anything in the self-help genre, plays, poetry, short stories or screenplays.
We do not accept submissions from authors who are not Australian residents.
We do not consider work that has been previously published. This includes self-published books 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 protected].
Please attach a 1-2 page synopsis of your work.
Please include in your cover email your biography as well as the word count on your completed manuscript.
Once we have received your submission we will then let you know if we are 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.
