We’re a fiercely independent publisher with a mandate of publishing pieces that share stories, tell truths, and change worlds. If you have written or created a publication that would fulfill and further our mandate, we want to hear from you.
Éditions 6489 currently accepts unsolicited submissions in the form of either pitches for not-yet-finished works or complete manuscripts ready for our review. Depending on the stage of completion that your piece is in, you may submit to either our pitch review process or our manuscript review process.
We work hard to review all submissions that we receive, and provide feedback and responses to everything. However, depending on the volume of submissions we receive, we may not be able to provide a personalized response to every submission we get. We will try our best, though. If you’ve submitted something to Éditions 6489 and have not received a response and would like to follow up, please visit our contact page and submit an inquiry.
If you are interested in submitting a piece of work that shares stories, tells truths, and changes worlds, please pick the path below that best fits your work.
Submit a pitch.
If you are currently working on a draft manuscript or other project that seems like it would be a good fit for Éditions 6489, but you do not yet have the piece completely ready for our review, you may submit a pitch to our pitch review process.
In submitting a pitch, we ask you for an ‘elevator speech’ about your work – in five hundred words or less, tell us what your piece is about, why it fits our mandate, and why it would be worth publishing. We will review your pitch and contact you if it is something that fits our mandate.
Submit a manuscript for review.
If you have completed a manuscript or a project that is ready for our review as a full piece of work, then submit it as a manuscript into our manuscript review process. Be sure that it is ‘complete’ in your mind – it is ready for critical review, editing, and potential publication.
In submitting your manuscript for our review, we will grant you access to our online editorial platform where you will upload your manuscript and we will begin the editing and commenting process. On our first submission form, we will ask for an short summary of your work and why you think it fits our mandate of sharing stories, telling truths, and changing worlds. From there, you will receive login instructions for our editorial platform.
