Getting Published

Every week our Editors are inundated with manuscripts, but the reality is that we can no longer accept unsolicited submissions. We will no longer look at or enter into correspondence about unsolicited works of fiction, non-fiction, plays, screenplays or children's books.

We will, however, continue to accept poetry submissions. If you are intending to submit your poetry, please make sure to read the following guidelines carefully.

Guidelines for Submitting Poetry:

In the first instance please send six examples of your work to:

Poetry Submissions Department
Faber and Faber Ltd
Bloomsbury House
74-77 Great Russell Street
London WC1B 3DA
UNITED KINGDOM

We do not accept submissions by fax, email or on disk.

If you have not heard from us within eight weeks then we regret to say that your submission has not been successful.

Always keep a copy for yourself as we are unable to return work or enter into any correspondence about it.

All poetry submitted is treated as confidential.

We do not accept unsolicited children's poetry collections.

If you are not sure about any of the above and need further clarification, please listen to the Manuscript Guidelines recorded message – telephone number 020 7927 3915.

Faber Academy

Of course, if you want to get published the most important thing you can do is write a great book. We can help with that. Faber Academy is a world-class creative writing school based here at Bloomsbury House, offering creative writing courses and professional manuscript assessments for every writer, wherever they are on their journey.
