Cipher Press looking for #NewQueerVoices

Graham Robson January 15, 2021

Cipher Press has announced it is open for submissions from trans and gender non-conforming writers, queer writers of colour, and queer working-class writers based in the UK.

Submissions are open until Monday, May 31 and the publishing house is looking for book-length adult fiction and creative non-fiction from both agented and unagented authors. They are open to any genre and style as long as the work fits somewhere within the literary bracket and reflects some aspect of the LGBTQ+ experience. They are not accepting children’s, YA, or poetry.

Cipher Press say: “We’d really like to open this submissions opportunity to as many people as possible who identify as trans or gender non-conforming, are a queer writer of colour, or a queer working-class writer, and so we’re happy to read unfinished manuscripts so long as you’ve written a substantial amount and have a clear view of the direction it will take.” 

If you’re unsure whether your book will be a good fit, have a look at the books page or check out the blog.

Cipher Press want the submissions process to be as accessible as possible so if you have any questions get in touch via the Contact page.
