DI Logo

Since 2012, we have published over 15 books, initially as eBooks and now as print and eBooks. We publish around 3 to 6 titles per year, often in themed series of books. We are currently accepting submissions of novels, novellas, short story collections, eBook singles, poetry collections and pamphlets.


If you would like to submit to prose to Dead Ink, please email with up to three chapters as a MS Word file, a short summary of your writing life, a synopsis (if fiction or narrative poetry) and any ideas on how you would help us promote your work and why you think Dead Ink might be the right publisher for you.

If you think Dead Ink might be the best place for your pamphlet of poetry, please start by sending 6 poems to the email address above.

We also accept  book reviews, literary criticism and interviews for the website. We particularly like strong opinions, writing that challenges orthodoxies and applies academic rigour to popular forms.


We are a small, self-funded press run by a team of volunteers. We will aim to respond to you within three months of your application and can only accept a handful of projects a year. In the meantime, please get to know Dead Ink by reading our website, joining our mailing list and support us by reading one of our books, turn up to events and help spread the word.
