DAW books

We publish science fiction and fantasy novels. We do not want short stories, short story collections, novellas, or poetry. The average length of the novels we publish varies but is almost never less than 80,000 words.

Mail us the entire manuscript with a cover letter, not three chapters and a query letter.

No electronic submissions. Use 8 1/2" x 11" white paper, double-spaced, with at least 1" wide margins all around. Please use only one side of the page, number your pages, and put the title of your novel at the top of each page. Manuscripts should always be unbound.

Very important: Please type your name, address and phone number in the upper right hand corner of the first page of your manuscript. Right under this, please put the length of your manuscript in number of words.

We publish first novels if they are of professional quality. A literary agent is not required for submission. Full submission guidelines here. 

Science fiction writers will also be interested in Kasma Science Fiction Magazine (see here) and Writers of the Future, a perpetual free contest with a $5,000 annual prize, plus $2,250 in prizes awarded every three months (see here).
