Giramondo Publishing accepts unsolicited book submissions for a limited period each year. Submissions are open until 1 March 2022.

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 is closed for submissions until 2022.

HEAT, Giramondo’s literary journal, will be published in a third series from early 2022. We welcome submissions of poetry, fiction, essays and hybrid forms. Our intention is to publish the best work being written in Australia and internationally, with a view to cultivating an openness to possibilities.

We intend to open submissions again in 2022 – dates will be advised here in the new year.
