If you are a graphic novelist looking to submit your work, and you have not previously published a full-length graphic book, please do so via the First Graphic Novel Competition before 28 February 2018. Otherwise please send your graphic submission directly to Corinne Pearlman.

If you are writing fiction (a novel or short stories), we will open the 2018 First Drafts Competition in April. This is the most direct route for unpublished authors to send in their work. We are not accepting unsolicited fiction submissions at present.

Throughout the year, we are happy to hear from writers whose work is recommended by our authors, and from literary agents who know the kind of fiction that will appeal to Myriad’s readers.

We also commission bold, thoughtful and eye-opening works of nonfiction from writers who share some of the sensibilities of our fiction and graphic lists—political, literary and/or feminist. If you are working on a book that you think might fit, please get in touch: submissions[at]
