Granta is committed to championing new voices and is open to unsolicited submissions of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We consider all submissions for both print and online publication.
We charge a fee of £3.50 for prose submissions and £2.50 for poetry submissions, equivalent to printing and postage. You can claim the costs of submission to Granta against any new subscription to the magazine. During every opening period, we offer 300 free submissions to authors on low incomes. If you are a low-income writer and would like to apply for free entry, please read our guidelines for low-income entry here.
We are committed to offering a home to writing by those who are marginalised or underrepresented. We welcome submissions by writers of colour; writers who are working class or on low incomes; writers who are queer, transgender, non-binary and gender-nonconforming; writers with disabilities; as well as any writer who feels that they or their story are underrepresented.
We will be open for non-fiction, fiction and non-fiction proposals submissions during the following periods in 2022:
1 March – 31 March
1 June – 30 June
1 September – 30 September
1 December – 31 December
We are currently closed for poetry submissions but we aim to re-open soon.
Submissions can be made from 10 a.m. UK time on the opening day until midnight UK time on the closing day.
