Deadline: March 15th, 2018
Word Count: 4,000-20,000


18thWall Productions is always open to novel submissions.

Please send us your first 20,000 words, a full outline, and a cover letter (i.e. your email) where you tell us something about yourself (including previous credits) and what led you to write your novel. Don’t stress it. A mangled cover letter won’t kill your chances with us. Like with any first date, the best advice is this: just be yourself.

We prefer that your novel submission follow the William Shun format outline, except that you use Times New Roman. It’s easier on our poor, editorial eyes.

Your email header should be Novel Submission: Title, Author’s Name, Wordcount.

Email your submission packet to

Please do not submit a manuscript with hyperlinks. If a link is required, we will discuss that upon acceptance.

We are not open to simultaneous submissions.


We are always willing to audition new artists. We’re specifically interested in cover art, interior illustrations, and graphic designers. If you don’t fit into any of those categories, we’re all the more interested to speak with you.

Attach three examples of your work, a curriculum vitae (if you haven’t been previously published, don’t worry–that won’t hurt you at all), and a cover letter (i.e. your email) telling us a bit about yourself. Best of luck!
