Finished a book of poetry or fiction? Amazing, well done. There are a couple of different routes to get it out there:

Some good places to look for these are:

Mslexia’s Indie Press Guide

Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook

Louise Tondeur’s handy blog post

Writing Tips Oasis – fiction

Writing Tips Oasis – poetry

National Poetry Library

Neon Books – poetry


There are also two publishers open to submissions on a ‘hybrid’ or ‘crowdpublished’ model:

Unbound is a hybrid publisher—you’ll need to pitch your book to them, and if it’s accepted, crowdfund for its publication.

Arkbound offers three potential routes, depending on your book and background: traditional publishing, crowdpublishing (as with Unbound), and sponsored publishing.


Good luck–there are more opportunities than ever to get your work out there.
