Storm Books Submission Policy
The Initial Submission Process:
Your initial work for consideration should be sent as a Word document of no more than your first two chapters or first four stories, and will then be considered for entry onto the site. We make no apology for only accepting work of a high standard. If your work is judged suitable we will notify you.
We are interested in literary fiction. We are not accepting poetry books at present. We do not care about subject matter but we are looking for commercial writing that will appeal to a wide audience. This includes children’s works.
We have a high standard of writing at Storm Books and to maintain it we will only accept work we believe has true merit. You will appreciate that our exacting editorial standards will hopefully guarantee that readers and publishers alike will return time after time.
Whilst we are open to all genres and styles, we do not accept work with blatant or overt pornographic, racist or homophobic content. Literature can be shocking and challenging and even sometimes offensive, but at Storm Books we believe it must not deliberately demean others or encourage hatred or violence.
The site does carry a disclaimer to visitors regarding our content. However, we do not want to offend or upset anyone. Challenge and provoke positive discussion and debate – yes!
We expect all Storm Writers to abide by this – one of our core principles.
From receiving your work, we will notify you within one calendar month whether we will accept you joining our project.
