Submissions are now open for fiction and non-fiction manuscripts. Giramondo Publishing accepts unsolicited book submissions for a limited period each year. Sign up to our newsletter for updates. 

Fiction and non-fiction submissions should include a brief synopsis of the work and the author’s CV, along with three sample chapters (these do not need to be consecutive or the opening chapters).

Poetry submissions should include a brief description of the work, and the author’s CV, along with the proposed manuscript.

We expect writers submitting to Giramondo to have familiarised themselves with the books that we publish and include a field on the submission form for writers to show their knowledge of our list.


HEAT, Giramondo’s literary magazine, is now welcoming submissions of fiction, essays, hybrid forms, translated works, and poetry. Our intention is to publish the best work being written in Australia and internationally, gathering innovative literary perspectives across borders.

HEAT is published six times a year in a slim, intimate format, that throws sharp focus on the work of the featured authors. 

Writers looking to submit to HEAT should familiarise themselves with prior issues of the magazine and consider subscribing

Please know, we do not publish reviews or opinion pieces, at least in the conventional sense. We are, however, interested in writing that engages with other writers and their works. We’re also intrigued by obsessions and curiosities, lost or secret histories, literary quests and writing that brings research to life. We encourage writing which gives full rein to the author’s voice, without the restriction of a word limit.  

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept material that has appeared elsewhere in the English language.
