Angry Robot to accept unsolicited manuscripts in March
Unpublished novelists take note.
Publisher Angry Robot has announced that it will accept unsolicited manuscripts from writers not represented by agents during March 2011, for consideration for possible publication. Calling it Open Door Month, the publisher says that if the March period of open submissions is successful, it will consider opening similar periods in the future.
Angry Robot publishes fantasy, science fiction, horror and urban or modern fantasy, according to its online submissions page, and is interested in seeing manuscripts from all sub-genres in those areas of fiction. It is especially enthusiastic about seeing manuscripts which mix genres.
The publisher is soliciting novel manuscripts only, and is not interested in novellas, short stories or non-fiction at present. It also emphasizes on its submissions page that its intended audience is adults. Accordingly, it is not looking for manuscripts aimed at a teenage or YA audience.
Angry Robot is interested in submissions from writers who are interested in selling rights for publication in all the regions in which it publishes, which includes the UK, the US and Australia. Besides print editions, the publisher also offers e-book and audio versions of its publications.
