SRL Publishing

  Full submissions ere at SRL Publishing, we welcome submissions from all minority groups, and stories that portray characters from minority groups. We understand there’s an uplift of agencies and publishers asking writers to identify their race/sexual preference at the top of their submission, but we don’t . We believe this makes writers feel uncomfortable, and puts publishers and agents at risk of discrimination. We encourage our authors to share as much of their identity as they are comfortable with. Writers will never be asked their sexuality, race, or religion – only if the author wishes to disclose, and we will never use this information to generate sales. We advise anyone who is thinking of submitting their work to us, to not put their race in the subject heading. We view all submissions as equal, and will not prioritise any submissions from certain minority groups. We don’t care about your colour, we care about your words.     What types of books do you

The Painkiller Project

  Full details  he Painkiller Pro ject is a playwriting competition with a £200 prize for each winning play. From May 2021 we will be open every other month for submissions. ​ One play will be selected each submission window and then released on our podcast  ( available here ) . So far our plays have featured actors such as Tamsin Greig, Jason Watkins, Noma Dumezweni, Toby Jones, Miriam Margolyes and Jessica Barden.   Since March 2020 the project has played an important role in the development of numerous emerging playwrights. While established artists have risen to the challenge of creating work during the pandemic, a new generation of playwrights have not been given a meaningful platform. This initiative exists as a remedy.    ​ We rely on receiving donations from those who believe in the project. If you would like to donate to the project, or if you know anyone who might want to support it, it would mean the world to us. To do so, there are two options: ​

Honey Guide Mag

  Full details We publish stories, art and poetry that examine the connection between animals and humans, and the ways we and our lives are more similar than people assume. Some topics and themes to consider, but of course we are open to others: the process of an animal bringing out a character trait in a person (ie:  Seabiscut ) animals as living, interactive symbols or metaphors of human wants, fears, secrets, challenges, and change (ie:  Life of Pi,  Cujo ) stories told through an animal's perspective ( The Incredible Journey, Pax ).  ​ Of course, you can send us both art and writing pieces with dogs and cats as central characters, but we see this so often -- what stories can you tell, either from imagination or experience, about marginalized species or creatures people usually avoid (ie: possums, bats, termites). We will consider pieces with mythical creatures.   Though we don't prefer pieces with foul language, we will consider them. J
