print & publication: as a new independent publisher we are seeking out new voices representing the  best in literary fiction. We are open to both new and established authors working in any genre. At present we are seeking submissions of novels and collections of short stories.  Although we are sure we will miss out on some poetic gems we are not currently looking for poetry collections. If you do have poetry that you wish to get to a wider audience please feel free to submit to our é-zine.

We are only accepting electronic submissions so please email to submissions@epoquepress.com and in the subject header state 'General Submissions', the title of your work  and your name. The full manuscript of your work should be attached in either MS word or PDF format.  The reason we ask for the full manuscript is because if we like what we receive we will want to keep on reading.  We also ask that you provide a short synopsis that tells us a little bit about the submitted work. This can be a separate attachment or within the body of the email.  And that's it. We don't want to lay down too many rules as rest assured your submission will only be considered on its literary merit.

We pledge to read and respond to all submissions received and therefore we hope you understand it may take a little while to get back to you.  If you haven't heard anything from us after twelve weeks please feel free to contact us for an update.

é-zine (Isolation): The times we are living through are unprecedented (an often-overused word which now, unfortunately, has more gravity to it). Over the coming months we will all have experienced a sense of isolation, but setting aside current events, let us not forget that isolation can, and does, impact and affect us all throughout our lives. We can be physically and mentally isolated; isolated due to the risk of contagion, through the process of being distant from others or as part of the process of where an idea or memory is divested of its emotional component. As always, please feel free to interpret this theme in any way you see fit.
