print & publication: As a new independent publisher we are seeking out strong new voices representing the very best in literary fiction. We publish adult literary fiction (novels and short story collections) and do not currently consider other genres such as children's fiction, poetry, memoir or fantasy.

Before submitting your work to us we would suggest you familiarise yourself with our list of published work. In your submission email we would love to hear which of our authors you have read and how you heard about us. You can also get a feel for what we are about by checking out our é-zine editions.

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.

 

Due to the volume of submissions we receive we hope you will understand that we cannot enter into correspondence or offer feedback on them all. We are a small team, we look to publish three to four titles a year and as such we will undoubtedly have to pass on some great work. If we do have questions about your submission we will be back in contact with you within six months.

é-zine: For our upcoming edition we wanted a theme that would celebrate the sense of 'Ecstasy' that comes with new beginnings, the feeling of excitement, abandon and jubilation that is engendered in us through the celebration of new opportunities and the rush of rapture and delirium that intoxicates us with a feeling of euphoria. Deadline for submissions: 31st August 2021
