Please read the following submission guidelines carefully to ensure your work matches our criteria.
While we greatly value freedom of speech and expression, our professional reputation must take priority. We have the right to reject work we consider inflammatory, scandalous or illegal at our discretion. Please contact us directly if you have any questions; visit our blog or attend our webinars for hints, tips and writing advice.
We expect all manuscripts and journal entries to be of a high standard and in a near-final condition before submission. Please note that we cannot accept any work that is under active consideration by other publishers, has previously been published or has been self-published in the past.
Please visit the Manuscripts page to submit your manuscript.
We are looking for a range of fiction and non-fiction manuscripts from writers residing in the United Kingdom. We will accept fiction manuscripts for novels up to 100,000 words and collections of short stories up to 40,000 words, and non-fiction manuscripts up to 80,000 words. The material may be on any genre, but should ideally focus on classical liberal / libertarian beliefs and instil a sense of liberty, freedom, truth and justice in the reader. Work that challenges the orthodoxy, explores niche concepts or steps outside the box will be regarded positively by our reviewers.
Our unique business model ensures the creator plays a vital role in the publishing process. If your submission is accepted, you will work closely with our team to bring your book to life. You can then choose what you need from our range of services, whether it be editing your manuscript to creating cover art, commissioning illustrations to organising a book launch. When it’s ready, we will use our network to generate publicity and market your book, but we will also supply you with the materials you need to promote your work independently; a win-win formula. With Blacklist Press, you have the potential to reap what you sow – and more.
Free Speech submissions
Please visit the Free Speech page to submit your journal entries.
We will accept non-fiction articles up to 5,000 words from writers resident in the United Kingdom only. Again, the material may be on any genre, but should ideally focus on classical liberal / libertarian beliefs and instil a sense of liberty, freedom, truth and justice in the reader. Work that challenges the orthodoxy, explores niche concepts or steps outside the box will be regarded positively by our reviewers.
If you are wishing to enter for our Free Speech journal, your work must relate to the specifications and follow the formatting guidance provided on the submission page.
