Rolling deadline (entries accepted year-round). Manifold Press, a UK-based literary publisher, will re-launch in January 2019 with a focus on queer historical fiction. They are seeking novel manuscripts (50K+ words) to publish in e-book format, and short stories (maximum 7,500 words) for a new literary quarterly. Editors say, “We seek fiction in a range of genres grounded in historical realities that finds space for LGBTQ+ and non-traditional protagonists. We will consider historical fantasy set in this world, but we are not at this stage taking fiction set in fantastical worlds.” Send first three chapters, synopsis, and cover letter to Farah Mendelsohn.
