The Lifted Brow iscurrently looking for submissions. They are always a publisher of work that can be classified as 'literary', and we seek to champion work that pushes boundaries and challenges assumptions.
They write that:
"Submissions are welcome from anyone who identifies as Australian. (For now, our focus is on unearthing Australian writers and work – sorry non-Australians!) We particularly encourage people who identify as queer and/or trans and/or intersex and/or are of any colour, religion, or gender, and/or have a disability, to submit. There are of course no age limits.
We currently accept unsolicited submissions in the categories of non-fiction and fiction (including short stories) – but we also encourage works that blend these and any other categories in the one manuscript.
We are not currently looking for unsolicited works of poetry, romance, fantasy, crime, true crime, adventure, parenting, cooking, traditional memoir, self-help, history, academic texts, YA, children's literature, and nor are we currently interested in scripts. However, if your manuscript experiments in a literary sense with combining any of the above forms, we will consider it.
We will consider books of any length, though we only can read three sample chapters, or a maximum 15,000 word sample if your work does not have chapters."
Please visit the website here for further details about the submission process, eligibility and any other information that will assist you with your submission.
It is recommended that before you consider submitting a manuscript that you read their previously published books and/or our magazine, as it'll give you the best possible indication as to whether your manuscript is suited to them.
