We are no longer accepting unsolicited manuscripts for 2023

We publish non fiction books of all kinds but do like to focus on memoirs, biographies, health and fitness, lifestyle, self-help and psychology. We also do some parenting. We like quirky! With a fondness for funny. And topics with substance.

As we are a small office, reading submissions takes us a lot of time. We don’t apologise for this because we know if we rush the initial reading stage, we might miss a hidden treasure! But we know this must give you, the budding writer, a big case of the fidgets. Be assured if we like your manuscript you should hear from us within three months.

The Finch Memoir Prize is an annual writing prize for the genre of memoir. It was started originally by Finch Publishing, and since Finch closed in 2018 we have revived it! The winning memoir receives publication and a sum of money (usually $5000, depending on current sponsorship). For more details see the link The Finch Memoir prize.
