Submissions to close 31st January

NoAlibis Press

Having received large volumes of submissions in recent months, we will temporarily close submissions on 31st January. This will give us a chance to catch up on reading submitted manuscripts and to compile our anthology for publication this summer (July 2019). If you are waiting for a response, rest assured we will get back to you as soon as we can. We always try to reply within 8 weeks, but recently have fallen behind. We are sorry for the delay and very much appreciate your patience.

At the time of writing, we plan to open submissions again in the spring (2019) when we hope to receive more manuscripts from women. Over the past year, we have gratefully received a large number of submissions, but only a very small percentage of these (approximately 10%) have been from women. We have beautiful dreams of one day receiving equal numbers of manuscripts from men and women...

Thank you to all writers who have submitted novels and short story collections to date. It has been a joy and a privilege to read your work. As a very small press, we have had to say a reluctant no thank you to some really great manuscripts. We sincerely wish everyone success with their writing, whatever the future brings.
