General Submissions Policy

We periodically issue calls for proposals and submissions linked to our themed, collaborative anthologies, which we are ever evolving into a platform for a plethora of styles and approaches. You can keep up to date with our submissions calls via our blog, Twitter and Facebook feeds, so follow us there in the first instance. You can also sign up to our mailing list at the bottom of the page. Calls are open to anyone and everyone across the world, and we particularly welcome submissions from BAME, LGBTQIA+ and disabled writers.

To submit to a Sidekick Books call, you need to have purchased at least one Sidekick title.

Unfortunately, we do not consider unsolicited manuscripts or book proposals. As these requests are increasing in frequency and we’re only a two-person team, we no longer have time to reply to such enquiries. Check out the detailed list of publishers provided by the Poetry Book Fair to find a good fit for your work.

The Sidekick Books online shop is currently closed as we're away from HQ during lockdown. Hope to be back with you soon. Meanwhile, you can still order our books from or via your local bookshop. Support small businesses, enjoy the read and stay safe! Dismiss
