Our current submissions window is closed. We will not accept submissions until the next submission window opens later in the year. You can sign up to our mailing list and follow Lilliput on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for notice of each submissions window.

To prepare for our next submissions window, please see our guidelines below.


  • 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 is currently not accepting genre literature, such as children’s literature, crime fiction or science fiction.
  • When the submissions window opens, we ask for a one-page cover letter including some details about your writing background, a synopsis of your book and why you believe the Lilliput Press is the best fit for your work. We also ask for three chapters (or an extract of up to 5,000 words) from your manuscript.

You can also refer to this Irish Times article for further advice.
