For contact information for our bookshops, please visit www.dauntbooks.co.uk
We welcome unsolicited submissions via email or post.
With our roots as a travel bookshop, the titles we publish are inspired by the Daunt shops themselves. We’re interested in writing that evokes a strong sense of place — literary fiction (novels and short stories) and narrative non-fiction with a lingering atmosphere, a thrilling story, and a distinctive style.
We do not currently publish poetry, genre fiction (including thrillers, crime, science-fiction, fantasy, and romance), novelty gift books, family memoirs or children’s books.
As part of your submission, please include a brief paragraph outlining why you believe your work would sit well on the Daunt Books list. For fiction, please submit the entire manuscript, and a one-page synopsis. For non-fiction, please submit an outline of the book, and a sample chapter. Please include all relevant attachments in one email.
We will endeavour to respond to each submission in a timely manner, however, due to the high volume we receive, we are not always able to do so. We hope you will understand.
