Penguin open their doors to unsolicited mss - for 3 months only!

Just spotted that Penguin UK is allowing unagented writers to send unsolicited email-only ms queries to them through August, September and October 2010.

So if you have something they might be interested in publishing, and you haven't yet netted an agent to do all the approach work for you, this could be your big chance.

You can find out more details on how to submit your work by email here at Penguin UK.

Good luck!

Dear Jane

Thanks for this useful information. We're back in Blighty for a bit - until we visit my step-daughter Jane in Istanbul. I'm completely out of touch with the British Poetry Establishment which is not an unpleasant feeling. Apart from Edwin Morgan dying, has anything major happened during my absence?

Best wishes from Simon

Thanks, Jane! It's a great opportunity for unagented authors for sure.

Don't think so, Simon. Not that anyone tells me anything.

Cheers, Talli. It's an interesting move by Penguin, isn't it? Makes you wonder WHY now and WHY for only a short period of time.
