How to Submit
To help you with the submissions process we have put some guidelines for your submission. Please read through carefully before sending us your submission. Anything that is vastly different to the guidelines will not be read.
N.b. Hurrah! We do accept unsolicited manuscripts.
N.b. At Maverick, we are looking for proactive authors, who want to go out and do events etc. It is also important for us that you write lots and really, really, really want to be an author.
Ready to submit? If so, click the button below, which will open your default email program.
(If the button doesn’t work, then email: m a n u s c r i p t firstname.lastname@example.org, without the spaces
