We’re seeking new voices to showcase. Submissions are welcome in all categories and genres. We want to discover what you’ve created.

Reading your submission

Step 3: Publishing process
If your submission is successful, we’ll walk you through a simple contract that outlines the terms and conditions of the publication of your work. Your work will be professionally edited, and you’ll receive a proof to check before it’s published. We’ll promote your work on our social media for a period following its publication, and encourage you to do the same. You’ll have exciting news to share!

Submission guidelines

Length of your work
Novel Collective’s website delivery method supports short pieces of writing. Submissions up to 10 000 words are welcome. Lengthy works may be published in parts.

Images to accompany your work
A feature image will enhance your published piece on Novel Collective. You may wish to submit one of your own images. If you don’t have an image, we can work with you to select one. Images should be submitted as web-ready jpeg files.

Prior publication and copyright
We’re unable to publish writing that has been published previously. We’re also unable to publish writing or images for which you do not own copyright.
