Vagabond Press is currently accepting manuscript submissions until December 1, 2019.

We ask writers interested in publishing with us to be familiar with the type of books that we publish and note in their cover letter why they see Vagabond Press as a good fit for their work. Due to limited resources, we are only able to publish a limited number of titles each year, and will not be able to provide detailed responses to manuscripts that we do not accept.

We're interested in prose works (fiction, non-fiction, critical works, memoir, essays),  works in translation and poetry. Novellas are especially welcome.

Submissions from outside Australia are welcome, including proposals for our Asia Pacific or Americas series (We publish either single author collections or 3-Poet collections).

For prose submissions (excluding novellas) should include a brief synopsis of the work, and the author’s CV including previous publications list if any, along with three sample chapters.

Poetry (and novella) submissions should include a brief description of the work, the author’s CV including previous publications list if any, and the proposed manuscript.

Save/title your PDF as: *Yourfamilyname_title_genre* (example, 'Yahp_TheCrocodileFury_Novel'; 'Allen_Present_Poetry'; 'Smith_Mothertongue_Memoir').

Please send all material as a single PDF to: by December 1, 2019. We will aim to respond by February 1, 2020.
