Harper Voyager Open Door

A few months ago Angry Robot ran an Open Door scheme, and it's good news that Harper Voyager are doing something similar. An Open Door programme is where a publisher enables, for a usually time-limited period, submissions of a specific genre from aspiring authors who lack agents (which are most of them as getting an agent isn't easy).
Full details can be found here:

The publisher already has a stellar array of fantasy writers including George RR Martin and Robin Hobb.

They're after pretty much any kind of 'speculative fiction', which translates to sci-fi, fantasy, horror and dystopia.

Digital submissions will be accepted from the 1st to the 14th of October.

I strongly advise those considering submitting to read the guidelines and FAQs to avoid making a schoolboy error and potentially losing out on a deal due to a technical failure.

The start of the submission window isn't far away, so if you've got a manuscript that needs dusting off and checking, you'd better get cracking.
