Sending of manuscriptsI don’t know what makes a book. Nobody does. But we know when we see one.
—Marguerite DURAS, Writing
To submit a manuscript, please mail us (yes, old style) a printed document (in US Letter, 12 point Times New Roman, double-spaced) coupled with a short text explaining your process. Emails with attached manuscripts or requesting an opinion on the potential of a project will not be opened. For an indefinite period of time, we are accepting only works of fiction (novels, short stories, narratives) and are suspending the receipt of poetry manuscripts.
When a project isn’t accepted, we do not return the manuscript, unless a stamped return envelope is provided.
La Peuplade’s approach to literature begins with the material, the writing process and mastery of language. There is no book without a writer.
