Getting Published

Every week our Editors are sent an array of manuscripts. Faber does accept direct poetry submissions, however, unfortunately we are not in a position to review unsolicited manuscript submissions of fiction, non-fiction, plays, screenplays or children’s books.

Faber & Faber have been handling Rights in works by many of the world's leading authors and estates ever since the company was established in 1929. We continue to receive hundreds of requests every week from people looking to use extracts by our poets, playwrights and novelists.
