3 Book Publishers Open to Novels


WritersMarket.com lists hundreds of book publishers for writers of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, writing for children, and more. Here are three looking for novel submissions:

DAW Books, Inc. is one of the rare imprints of Penguin that does not require an agent to make submissions on behalf of writers. The editorial focus at DAW is science fiction and fantasy novels. The editors caution that nearly all their novels are more than 80,000 words long.

Milkweed Editions is a literary press based in Minnesota. In addition to novels, this press also publishes nonfiction and poetry. They’re currently open to submissions through the end of September. After that, they’ll re-open to submissions in January.

Grey Gecko Press is a small publisher that accepts about everything—except extreme horror, erotica, and religious fiction. If you’re writing in those genres, this isn’t the press for you. For everyone else, it might be a good fit. Prospective authors should submit a synopsis and the first three chapters.
