Submissions

Writer’s Edit and Talem Press are not like other publishers.

As authors ourselves, we understand the heartache and frustration that comes hand-in-hand with the submissions process.

Which is why we get back to everyone who submits. Within 3 weeks. Regardless of the outcome.

Closed for submissions

The Writer’s Edit imprint, Talem Press is currently closed for full-length manuscript submissions.
