Pan Macmillan Australia: Now Accepting Submissions on the First Monday of Every Month

Written by Emily Harstone

Important: Read This Before Submitting Your Manuscript

Seven common manuscript submissions mistakes that are very easy to avoid.

Pan Macmillan Australia is open to direct submissions. They are the Austalian imprint of Macmillian, one of the big five publishers. This is the only way to submit to Macmillan directly. They have excellent distribution in Australia.

They publish commercial fiction including  women’s fiction, romance, thriller, crime, historical, humor, paranormal, fantasy, as well as literary fiction and non-fiction, children’s and young adults books , and commercial non-fiction ranging from memoir to diet.

On the first Monday of every month only, between 10am and 4pm Australian Eastern Standard Time,  they accept electronic submissions. If you are not sure what time that is in your country you can use this time zone convertor. Please note that if you are based in North America it probably won’t be on Monday in your time zone.

Manuscript submissions sent outside their sanctioned time period will not be read.

They ask that you send the first 100 pages of your manuscript if it is for adults or the first 50 pages of your manuscript if it is aimed at children, along with a synopsis that is no more than 300 words in length as separate word or PDF documents. You can submit multiple manuscripts as long as they are not in the same series.

They have additional questions outlined on their form, and you can see and review the questions at any time. The form does not only appear when they are open to submissions.

All submissions are made through their easy to use submission manager. To learn more go to their website here.
