Just Another Manuscript Monday
For several years, publisher Allen & Unwin has accepted manuscript pitches from aspiring writers every Friday with a service it aptly called the Friday Pitch. Now Pan Macmillan has inaugurated its own version of the Friday Pitch - Manuscript Monday. Pan Macmillan will consider pitches for commercial and literary fiction and non-fiction, children’s books and young adult fiction, so long as they are emailed on a Monday between 10am and 4pm. From November, the publisher will no longer accept hard copy submissions at all - thus saving several forests as well as uncovering tomorrow’s bestsellers.
