Spotlight Books: call for book submissions

Closing 24 February 2019. In partnership with New Writing South and Myriad Editions, Spotlight Books have launched an open call for:

  • unpublished poets and fiction writers from under-represented backgrounds—those who face barriers due to mental health, disability, identity or social circumstance.
  • Manuscripts of fiction (8-10,000 words) and poetry (40-45 pp. at 20 lines/page)
  • Deadline: 24 February 2019
  • For more information and how to enter, please see https://www.creativefuture.org.uk/spotlight-books/

Six writers will be selected and supported to polish their manuscripts and further their careers, and be published in individual short books with worldwide distribution.
