Liberties Press Submissions Policy

Liberties Press is committed to publishing high-quality work from new, emerging and established authors. We accept unsolicited submissions for non-fiction, fiction and poetry throughout the year. 

There are approximately 100,000 new books published in English every year. In this environment, a publisher provides a unique service to the author: editorial, promotion and design work, as well as attention and care. These things all have to be paid for – and the traditional retail book trade remains an extremely challenging commercial environment. As a result, Liberties Press charges for submissions. For details of these rates, please contact the publisher at sean@libertiespress.com. Submissions should be in digital form (although we also accept submissions in hard copy), with a minimum of three chapters (though preferably a full script), a synopsis, and a covering letter. If sending in hard copy, please do not include original photographs, documents or illustrations: we cannot accept responsibility for the loss of such items. A report, covering the content, writing style and marketability of the work, will then be prepared by Liberties Press.

We have a hard-earned reputation as an innovative publisher of high-quality books. Over the years, we have received thousands of unsolicited submissions, and we have successfully published hundreds of titles, in Ireland and elsewhere. We hope that authors will think carefully before submitting material to us, and to value the work that we do. We look forward to receiving your submission.
