Freight Books accepts submissions from agents and unrepresented writers. We are particularly interested in literary novels and narrative non-fiction. We do not publish children’s fiction. We do not accept unsolicited poetry manuscripts.

How long will it take?
Response times vary greatly. If you haven’t heard from us within 12 months and would like your manuscript returned or recycled, get in touch by email first and we will attempt to reply in a reasonable amount of time. Due to time pressures, Freight Books cannot enter into discussions about the relative merits or otherwise of rejected manuscripts.
