Vagabond Press now accepts unsolicited submissions.

Over 2020-2021, we are particularly interested in collections of short fiction and novellas, as well as collections of essays on contemporary life, society, politics, well being, community, art and culture from across Asia Pacific.

We read all manuscripts carefully but are only able to publish a very small number and are only able to respond in detail to manuscripts that we accept. Please do not submit your manuscript if it is already under consideration with another publisher.

Fiction and non-fiction submissions should include a short synopsis of the work (300 words) and the author’s CV including contact details, along with three sample chapters.

Poetry submissions should include a brief description of the work (300 words), and the author’s CV including contact details, along with the complete manuscript. We currently have a large number of manuscripts we hope to be able to publish over 2021, but we are still open to reviewing manuscripts.

We are currently especially interested in publishing single author collections of essays examining art, culture and society in Asia Pacific, as well as novellas from the region.

We are always interested to hear from translators who would like to work with us to continue to build our Asia Pacific writing series.

Please submit all material in a single PDF and send to submissions@vagabondpress [dot] net

We will endeavour to respond within two months of receiving the manuscript.
