My overlords at Tor UK have just announced that they have an open submissions policy. If you’re a budding novelist, who finds it frustrating to get access to an agent let alone a publisher, it’s now time to start preparing that manuscript to send in. There are a few guidelines to follow, which is generally to make life easier for the editors given the amount of work about to come their way. They include: you must use Comic Sans, size 16 or above, and any maps must be drawn using Microsoft Paint. Julie, my editor, especially likes SF poetry submissions.
