Harper Voyager Global Digital Publishing, a global science fiction and fantasy imprint, takes for two weeks only – unagented – submissions, particularly novels written in the following genres:
- epic fantasy
- science fiction
- urban fantasy
Submission guidelines and key information can be found at www.harpervoyagersubmissions.com. They are looking for full-length manuscripts of more than 70,000 words, and ideally between 80,000–120,000 words.
The submission portal will be open from the 1st to the 14th of October 2012.
The manuscripts will then be read and those most suited to the global Harper Voyager list will be selected jointly by editors in the USA, UK and Australia. Accepted submissions will benefit from the full publishing process: accepted manuscripts will be edited; and the finished titles will receive online marketing and sales support in World English markets. There is the “possibility” that submissions will be published in print as well.
The submissions and digital publications are a joint, global effort by Harper Voyager. The three editors note that: “No other publishing company has done a coordinated submission period for unagented authors across three continents, and all of us at Harper Voyager and at HarperCollins Publishers are absolutely thrilled to be launching this huge opportunity. We look forward to discovering and digitally publishing many new exciting voices globally at Harper Voyager.”
