Open Call for Manuscript Submissions – Vee Press

 

Vee Press is accepting submissions for our upcoming e-book line. We are actively seeking talented writers who have completed a novel-length manuscript or have written more than 10 chapters of an ongoing work. Writers who are willing to work with us through our fast-paced publishing cycle are especially welcome.

 

We are considering both popular non-fiction and fiction titles on any topic, with a great preference for plots or subjects that concern the Philippines and its culture. Both non-professional and established authors are welcome, but any work submitted to us must not have been previously published, including self-publishing, in print or online. Self-published works are considered published.

 

We are looking for:

  • Manuscripts with a projected length of between 60,000 and 75,000 words. We are currently not considering works that go above the maximum word count, but we will consider pitches for potential series.

  • A fresh premise that can be conveyed as a paragraph-length (5 sentences maximum) pitch.

  • Non-fiction that takes a popular (mainstream, non-academic) approach on their subject matter.

  • For fiction, works in any genre that mix engaging storytelling with exciting plot and compelling characters.

 

Further guidelines:

  • Please make sure the copyright and publishing rights are not owned by other parties. Unpublished manuscripts optioned by companies or organizations are not up for consideration.

  • Works that are based on material (television, literature, etc.) that have not entered public domain are not accepted.

  • If excerpts of the work have been previously published, we ask the authors to include this information upon submission.

Submission Requirements:

 

  • Email the complete manuscript and a full synopsis (beginning to end) as Microsoft Word (*.doc) attachments to kautencio@vibalfoundation.org. The manuscript and synopsis should be two separate files. Please make sure that the file extension is not *.docx or any other variation.

  • The manuscript should be set in either 12 point Courier New or 14 point Times New Roman, with double-spaced lines. Margins should be set at 1 inch on all sides. Please do not include page numbers, headers or footers in your manuscript.

  • In the body of your email include a brief description of the novel, estimated word count, and your publishing history (if any) such as previous books, awards, and quotes from other authors or reviews.

  • Include the working title and your name in the email’s subject line.

  • Authors who intend to publish using a pseudonym are still required to furnish us with the information mentioned above.

For more inquiries, contact Kristel Autencio at kautencio@vibalfoundation.org or call the Vibal Foundation office at 416-840-60.
