Submissions

Guidelines:

We publish Canadian authored drama, poetry, and certain types of non-fiction. We do not publish fiction.

Drama (Scirocco Drama): We only consider manuscripts that have or will be professionally produced.

Poetry (The Muses’ Company): We publish poetry by poets who have established a publishing record, either a book or books, or several publications in literary magazines.

Non-fiction (J. Gordon Shillingford Publishing Inc., Watson & Dwyer): J. Gordon Shillingford titles include books about politics, religion, true crime, and biography titles. Watson & Dwyer titles are primarily Canadian social history books. Look through our non-fiction titles and you’ll get a good idea of the kinds of non-fiction we publish.

Please send a query letter, a writer’s CV with a list of previous publications (and productions for drama), and no more than a 20-page sample of your manuscript. If we are interested, we will ask for the rest of the manuscript. Please enclose a SASE if you want your manuscript returned (manuscripts without a SASE will not be returned).

We will consider multiple submissions, but please make a note of this in your covering letter.

Please allow 3-6 months for a response.
