Jonathan Cape Is Accepting Unsolicited Submissions

Throughout the month of June unpublished and emerging writers will have a rare opportunity: the chance to submit their work directly to one of the world’s most prestigious literary imprints, Jonathan Cape.

UK-based Jonathan Cape is a imprint of Penguin Random House’s Vintage Books. It publishes the likes of Ian McEwan, Philip Roth, Audrey Niffenegger and Anne Enright.

Jonathan Cape - Unsolicited Submissions

This account of Jonathan Cape’s development was published in 1971 to mark its fiftieth anniversary.

Unsolicited submissions will be open between 1 June and 30 June. To submit their work, writers are asked to email an initial 50 pages of prose fiction as an attachment to These pages can be part of a novel or novella, or they can be short stories.

Together with the 50 pages writers should also include their contact details and a covering paragraph with ‘any information you think might prove helpful in considering your submission’. The submitted writing can be a work in progress.

Submissions sent after 30 June will not be read so get in quick. After this date, Jonathan Cape will once again only accept submissions via a literary agent.
