Submissions

Dockyard Press publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and books beyond category in English, Scots, or Scottish Gaelic. We’d rather see complete manuscripts than proposals. We have two imprints:

DOCKYARD — We want fiction, nonfiction, poetry, politics (left-wing, green, Scottish, feminist, and categories we haven’t thought of). Though we’re based in Scotland, we publish internationally, so we’ll consider books from anywhere. Send your manuscript as a PDF, Pages or Word file to Dockyard Submissions. Email submissions only.

WATERFRONT — Waterfront is Dockyard Press’s upcoming women’s imprint. What do we mean by women’s writing? If you’re a female-identified writer, you tell us. We want to be surprised. Whichever of our two imprints you submit to is your choice, but it has to be one or the other. Send your manuscript as a PDF, Pages or Word file to Waterfront Submissions. Email submissions only.
