Having an open submissions policy is an important part of our ethos at Valley Press. We love to hear from writers of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, whatever stage of their career they may be at; and we love to read their new work, with an eye for publication in the coming years.
However, after receiving three manuscripts a day for most of 2017, we are currently a little behind with our reading. We have over 200 manuscripts to read, evaluate and reply to before the end of the year, so we are not accepting any new submissions at present. Please check this page in the spring, or better still, join our email newsletter
to be kept up to date.
If you'd like to get involved in the world of independent publishing, and help us get through that pile as quickly as possible, we'd be glad to have you on our team of readers, offering your feedback on the most promising new literature we receive.
