During 2021 we were looking for submissions of novellas, although this window is currently closed.
We are interested in writers from all backgrounds and of all levels of experience.
We know you've got it in you and our submission process - - when it is open - - is secure, fun and easy.
We like publishing full poetry collections of over 100 pages; but we are poetry-full for 2022.
If you were planning to submit a crime novel to Leamington Books and have arrived on this page the submissions window is closed, we're sorry.

“It's called publishing. It's how smart people install new ideas into other people's brains.”

“Publishing is a business and writing is an art. The two have to be crammed together despite the clearly different motivations behind them.”
― Michelle M. Pillow
“Behind every novel is a greater story of how it came to be published.”
― T.L. Rese
“Still, to be urged to write and to be urged to publish are two different things; and nobody so far was urging her to do the latter.”
― Alan Bennett, The Uncommon Reader
