call for submissions

MARGŌ COLLECTIVE is currently looking for new, unpublished and original writing.

We are looking for daring fiction that claws at the emotions and breaks expectations. Engaging prose of progressive voices and narratives unraveling the nuances of modern society. We are here to champion storytelling that is gritty, raw and honest.

If your manuscript fits the bill* send it here submissions@margocollective.comHere’s what we’d love to see from you:

– the first three consecutive chapters of your manuscript as .doc or .docx Word file
– a synopsis of the story and its main themes (we need to know the entire story as you have it planned out – twists, turns and the all important ending)
– a one A4 max covering letter detailing your work, writing experience, where the book fits in the market, its readership, information about any titles in the same field which might be seen as competition for your book (or give some indication of how yours differs from these etc.)

*what we don’t want: currently we’re not looking for poetry, short stories (unless it’s for our anthology Chains), chick lit, cozy crime, children’s books, graphic novels or general non-fiction.

We aim to get back to all submissions within three months of receipt.

We accept unsolicited submissions. Please note, we currently don’t accept postal submissions.
