Open submission for un-agented BAME writers

The Borough Press has teamed up with The Good Literary Agency to open submissions for un-agented BAME writers. The winner will receive a £10,000 publishing contract with The Borough Press, representation from The Good Literary Agency, and mentoring from Nikesh Shukla.

The open submission, spearheaded by Assistant Editor Ore Agbaje-Williams, is calling for authors from BAME backgrounds who have written a literary or literary-commercial novel in keeping with the spirit of The Borough Press list – books people want to talk about, either to question or agree; books that span the globe, whether near home or far afield; energetic, modern and eclectic books that inspire passion in readers – to enter the open submission.

Entrants are invited to submit the first three chapters/50 pages of their novel (up to 10,000 words) to from 1 January – 31 March 2019, along with a synopsis of the book and author biography. More information.
