Submissions are currently closed, however if you would like to be ready for when they open again, please find our guidelines below:
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.
NB. This is a different email to the picture book submissions. Please make sure you are sending to the correct email. For information on picture book submissions, click here.
Current Response Time:
We aim to respond within a year. Please allow a year before chasing a submission – if you have not heard from this after a year then please use the form below to contact us.
We apologise for this long response time, but we are a small team and reading fiction manuscripts is time consuming. We respond to everything.
