Lost World Press is at present closed for submissions. 

For those interested in submitting in the future, please read through our guidelines below:


The speculative side to fiction.

We want well written, satisfying work. 

Lost worlds, sci-fi, Atlantis re-found, things that go bump in the night, steampunk, clockpunk, alternative universes, timeslip, parodies and parallels  …-  if you have a completed novel which you believe may fit, then send us:


1.  The first three chapters or fifty pages.

2. A synopsis of one or two pages.

3. A covering letter with a brief overview  – we do NOT need a brilliant ‘pitch’ or the kind of blurb which would go on the back of the book.  The basic story, main character(s) and general themes will suffice.

4.  Ensure that your work has been checked for typos, grammar and punctuation mistakes, and then save your work with the date of submission, followed by the title and your name*. We suggest you use a clean, clear font such as Times New Roman or Arial 12pt and a minimum of 1.5 spaced.

*Example file name: 01.01.12_LITERARY_JOEBLOGGS



We will respond as soon as possible. If we turn the submission down we will, if you wish, then give a fuller explanation of why we do not feel it is right for us.
