While Editia’s list is full for much of 2013, we will always make room in our schedule for compelling works of longform journalism and short non-fiction – particularly those that demand quick turnaround publishing due to their newsworthiness. Our high-speed, digital first production schedule has been designed precisely for books like these.
Editia titles are between 10,000 and 35,000 words long. They may be extensions of magazine features or newspaper articles; reinterpretations of academic, government or business research; or completely original works. They may contain hard news journalism, quirky and unusual feature-style content, or practical infotainment.
We are already in talks with authors about titles in the fields of the arts, culture, literature, media, travel, technology, politics, business, economics, science, sport, crime, society, life and food, and seek to build our list in these areas.
We pay better than industry standard royalties but in lieu of an advance offer a package of digital consulting to assist the author in building and managing their social media and web profile.
If you believe you have the makings of a digital first title that will fit in with our list, please prepare and send us your proposal on any “Six till Seven Submission Sunday”.
Your proposal must include a 400-word outline of and 1000-word sample from the proposed work, an author biography and CV and a short written reference from a magazine or newspaper section editor, university/TAFE/college writing or journalism lecturer/tutor or literary agent.
The entire package must reach us at email@example.com between 6am and 7am or 6pm and 7pm AEST on a Sunday to be considered.
We will respond to your application within one month.
