How to submit your work to SCRIPTORA
For detailed information about publication by SCRIPTORA, click here to email us, or write to: SCRIPTORA, 25 Summerhill Road, London N15 4HF. Please enclose a stamped addressed envelope with your enquiry.
SCRIPTORA is an assisted-publishing facility open to members of the SWWJ.
It helps FULL and ASSOCIATE members to branch out and be published in a genre that is new to them, for instance, a published journalist, dramatist or poet, who has written a novel, which she (or he) is finding difficult to place with a large publisher, having no track record in that area of writing.
SCRIPTORA can also help writers of short stories or poetry to reach a new readership by publishing an anthology of their work. An out-of-print book can sometimes be re-published in a smaller quantity than a commercial publisher would consider.
We offer a package which includes professional Proofreading, Editing, Publicity and Marketing advice. All our services cost £10 per hour, a special rate for Society members. We use a good printer whose prices are very competitive, provide you with your ISBN and review your book in The Journal.
When you apply to be a SCRIPTORA author, you will be asked to supply the names of a minimum of two people of literary standing e.g. an agent, an editor, a critic, a published author, a member of the SWWJ Council, who will endorse you.
Please note: Publication will not be considered without this endorsement.
