Submissions Guidelines and Processes

Selkirk Stories welcomes submissions of fiction and poetry from Prince Edward Island authors, especially those who are unpublished. We will consider submissions that meet our submission guidelines (below).

Submission Guidelines

We publish fiction (collections of short stories, novellas and other short fiction, novels) and poetry. We will consider memoirs for publication, particularly if they reflect the experience of living in Prince Edward Island. We do not publish non-fiction works such as self-help books, political commentaries or works of sociology or history. We do not publish works with explicit sex scenes, graphic violence and frequent use of foul language and profanity. We want all our books to present a positive view of Prince Edward Island and Canada.

Please do not submit any work, including sample chapters, without first contacting us by way of this website!

Editorial Services

We can provide editing services for writers who do not seek publication with us but need the assistance of a professional writer. We do not write any content for you, but rather edit what you have written and offer recommendations for improvement.
