Nightwood’s submissions policy:

Nightwood Editions reads manuscripts year round, so feel free to send us a 15-page sample of your work. When we are soliciting manuscripts, we’ll contact you if we want to see more.

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as you notify us immediately if your manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere.

It wouldn’t hurt to to familiarize yourself with our books to be sure that yours is a good fit. We especially encourage submissions from Indigenous writers, women, writers of colour, writers with disabilities and writers from the LGBTQ community. Please submit no more than once during a calendar year.

When you are ready to submit, please follow these guidelines:

  • For fiction and poetry submissions, please send a synopsis and 10-15 page sample along with your short bio and literary CV listing your previous publications, if applicable, to Amber McMillan at: amber[at]nightwoodeditions[dot]com.
  • For nonfiction submissions, please send a brief proposal along with your sample to: info[at]nightwoodeditions[dot]com.
  • You can also mail your hard copy manuscript to: Nightwood Editions, Box 1779, Gibsons, BC, Canada, V0N 1V0. If you would like your manuscript returned, please enclose a large, self-addressed envelope with adequate postage, and remember to include your contact information.

Be patient. We try to respond promptly, but we receive many submissions and it can take several months for us to respond.
