In order to curb the spread of COVID-19, staff at the Lilliput Press are currently working from home. Submissions may be sent by email rather than by post for this duration.

Please email and include the following:

  • A cover letter introducing yourself, including your contact details.
  • A one-page synopsis of your work.
  • Either the full work or three sample chapters (these don’t need to be consecutive). All pages must be numbered.


  • The books published by The Lilliput Press are all broadly focused on Irish themes. Please bear this in mind when considering us for submission.
  • The Lilliput Press receives hundreds of submissions every year. We endeavour to give time and attention to all of them, but please allow 3 to 6 months for a response.
  • Please do not send us original copies of photographs or manuscripts.
  • The Lilliput Press is currently not accepting genre literature, such as children’s literature, crime fiction or science fiction.
