Unsolicited Manuscripts

We welcome unsolicited submissions via email or post.

With our roots as a travel bookshop, the titles we publish are inspired by the Daunt shops themselves. We’re interested in writing that evokes a strong sense of place — literary fiction (novels and short stories) and narrative non-fiction with a lingering atmosphere, a thrilling story, and a distinctive style.

We do not currently publish poetry, genre fiction (including thrillers, crime, science-fiction, fantasy, and romance), novelty gift books, family memoirs or children’s books.

As part of your submission, please include a brief paragraph outlining why you believe your work would sit well on the Daunt Books list. For fiction, please submit the entire manuscript, and a one-page synopsis. For non-fiction, please submit an outline of the book, and a sample chapter. Please include all relevant attachments in one email.

We will endeavour to respond to each submission in a timely manner, however, due to the high volume we receive, we are not always able to do so. We hope you will understand.

'They pack, along with a microfibre towel and a thermos of tea, an axe, for breaking a channel through the ice.' Love this piece on the joys of cold-water swimming by @Rebeccamead_NYC. Very happy to see At the Pond referenced. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/01/27/the-subversive-joy-of-cold-water-swimming

‘An essential read... Replete with insight & wit, like Nora Ephron, you will return to this rollicking read with habitual avarice.’ The first review of PARALLEL LIVES is in https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/books/browser-john-bishop-gives-advice-on-the-ageing-process-1.4131870?mode=amp
