New guidelines for Friday pitch at Arena/Allen & Unwin

    The following are a list of ammendments to the earlier news items on the Friday pitch to Louise Thurtell at Arena/Allen & Unwin.

  1. It is preferred that submissions be sent by email, not snailmail.
  2. Mailed material for Friday pitch will not be returned, even if accompanied with a SSAE.
  3. Adult fiction only, please. No children's fiction or adult non-fiction.
  4. All authors the publisher is interested in will be notified by the Thursday following submission.

Ms Thurtell said; "The concept of the Friday pitch has been a great success. But we just don't have the time to return mailed submissions given the volume of material we're receiving.

" I'm looking for any type of fiction – speculative novels thrillers, crime, chick-lit, espionage, general – that I think has a great story and is well-written."
