We offer the following services:

    • Your word count must be a minimum of 20,000 words and a maximum of 100,000 word
    • We prefer completed manuscripts (or near completion). We don’t pay advances
    • We pay generous author royalties of 25%. Why such a high royalty payment to you? Because we support writers, not shareholders
    • Manuscripts should be submitted via Word (.doc or .rtf) only. We do not accept pdf or printed copies. Files should be no larger than 5MB

    We also require the following information:

      These details and the word document of your manuscript should be attached to an email and sent to

      Please note that due to the volume of submissions, we may take some time to respond to you, but we will respond regardless of whether we are interested in proceeding to publish your work or not.

      If we do choose to publish your novel, we’ll be in contact to discuss next steps, like editing, cover design, contracts and commission charges. Please also note that we only accept short stories and poetry through dyst Literary Journal, our quarterly literary magazine, specialising in political & dystopian fiction.
