IMPORTANT NOTICE – PLEASE READ THIS
We have a great, fun submissions process – it only has one problem which is we’ve broken it – so if you have got all the way through our questions just to see a blue bouncing ball on screen when you try to upload your work, it’s really not you, it’s us. Sorry about that!
Pending us being able to work out what has gone wrong and fix the problem, to submit work please email Pat at pat (at) badpress (dot) ink with your submission.
Please put Submission in the title of your email and attach the full text of your work and a synopsis of the story – and please do still read the tips below.
If you have tried to submit your work in late 2023 and had this problem / haven’t heard from us – please send Pat an email to check we have received your documents.
WANT SOME TIPS?
Pat is the gatekeeper here at BAD PRESS iNK. She will be the first to read your submission. She is also our in-house copy editor and proofreader so she does like a well set out and proofed document… you have been warned.
NO WORKS IN PROGRESS!
Please send the full work. Don’t send half-finished projects.
Take pride in your work and give yourself the best chance you can. Check through your manuscript for spelling, grammar and formatting – we’re repeating ourselves here so there’s a message there. Read it to yourself or a friend. Does it flow? Does it make sense? Be brutal so we don’t have to be.
READ THIS FIRST!
READ HERE for a quick and dirty guide to the brutal world of publishing you are thinking of venturing into and what it will involve.
