Work with Us

 

Careers:

There are currently no permanent vacancies at Luath. 


Work experience and internships:

We host Work Experience Placements on a regular basis. Please note that these are very popular, and it is often necessary to book this a long time in advance. We take on UK and overseas students in various subjects including Publishing, English, History and Marketing throughout the year, for periods ranging from 1 week to 6 months or more. To find out more please contact us.  

 

 

 

Submissions:

If you think you have written a book that may fit with Luath’s publishing programme, and would like to make a submission to us, please send:

  • A clear synopsis of up to 250 words

  • Which genre you would categorise it as (use our website categories as a guide)

  • Sample chapters or manuscript

  • A short biography

  • A pre-paid addressed envelope large enough for your manuscript to be returned in, should it be unsuccessful

Please try to ensure that everything you send can be easily stored together - for example, held together with a paperclip or all put in a cardboard folder.

Please note that we cannot accept electronic submissions, only paper hard copies. Submissions or proposals sent by email will not be accepted.

If you do not enclose a pre-paid envelope, we will assume that you are happy for us to recycle your manuscript. You will still receive a letter notifying you of our decision. Do not send original copies or artwork. Luath Press cannot take responsibilty for any items sent to us. Please allow 3-6 months for our response. We do aim to respond to everyone who submits a piece of work but if you have not heard from us after a year, you can assume your submission was unsuccessful.
