Call for BAME writers and designers

Summersdale are looking for writers of colour for an exciting new venture!

As part of Hachette UK, Summersdale Publishers are one of the world’s leading gift and non-fiction publishers. In early 2021, we will be launching a brand new imprint, dedicated to tackling social issues (think feminism, racism, LGBTQ+ rights and activism), and to providing beautiful gift books by and for marginalised and under-represented communities.

We are looking to discover and support new talent from BAME creatives in the UK, in order to create inspiring books that fill a gap in the market: accessible and friendly introductions to big topics that start important conversations. You don’t need to be agented.

We are currently looking for writers and designers of colour to work on our forthcoming titles. If you’d like to get involved, please email with a few samples of your work and a little bit about you. We’d love to hear from you!
