Pan Macmillan Australia seeks new authors: both fiction and nonfiction, kid lit and adult lit

The Wilderwomen

published by Pan Macmillam

Pan Macmillan Australia accepts unagented submissions directly from authors. They publish both fiction and nonfiction for adults and also junior fiction (aka chapter books) middle grade and young adult fiction. 

Your submission will be read within three months and you will be contacted if successful. If you do not hear from them, they’re not interested.

They do not publish poetry, plays or textbooks but are happy to receive any genre of manuscript. They are particularly interested in the following:

Fiction: Contemporary drama, sagas, psychological suspense, crime and thrillers, historical, and literary.

The editors suggest authors review the kind of books Pan MacMillan publishes to see if you might be a good fit – and also to find books to compare your own manuscript to.

See recent fiction releases here.

Nonfiction: Narrative non-fiction, contemporary issues, memoir, history, true crime, lifestyle and health, mind body spirit. See recent releases here.

Children’s books and young adult fiction: Junior and middle grade fiction, young adult and young adult/crossover fiction. See recent releases of children’s fiction here, and of young adult fiction here.

See full guidelines here.

Literary agent Olga Filina

While Pan Macmillan accepts submissions from unagented authors, most big publishers do not. If you’re interested in meeting an agent and in getting published, don’t miss our in-person How to Get Published workshop, Saturday, November 19, in Mississauga, with literary agent Olga Filina of 5 Otter Literary. As this is an in-person workshop, attendance will be strictly limited – so lots of personal attention.
