What Publishers Look For

Friday, 26 May 2017

Twenty-two OOTA Members and friends attended a workshop at the Fremantle Arts Centre with Georgia Richter, fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry publisher at Fremantle Press.

In an hour-long talk and discussion, award-winning author Georgia shared her insights into what Fremantle Press, and publishers in general, look for when considering new manuscripts for publication, as well as offering valuable advice and encouragement to those seeking a publisher.

With a mission to nurture new and emerging Western Australian writers, not-for-profit publisher Fremantle Press, publishes about 25 books per year ranging from crime and general fiction, young adult and junior fiction, to picture books, poetry and non-fiction. Fremantle Press accepts unsolicited manuscripts from authors of Western Australian origin or whose main place of residence is Western Australia, and their submission guidelines are available on their website at www.fremantlepress.com.au.
