Manuscript Submissions | Fiction


Submission Criteria

We try not to be too prescriptive, but here are some basic requirements.

Please note that we can only consider those submissions that comply with the guidelines:

• An outline or table of contents
• At least two chapters
• Information on the intended readership, and on similar books
• A short author biography

You can make your submission either electronically or on hard copy.

Please Note: Electronic nonfiction submissions should be mailed to Abdeah.Davis@nb.co.za.

Hard copy submissions should be printed on white A4 papers and on one side only.

Pages should be numbered and it helps to insert the title of your manuscript at the top of each page as header.

Please do not send sole original copies of manuscripts as we cannot be held responsible for their return.

Submissions can be sent to:
