Getting Published

It can be difficult for writers and even existing authors to get noticed in front of publishers, that's why we created an easy to navigate with a straightforward online submission system. Our system allows authors of all genres to have their work considered by one of our editors. Please note that 5310 Publishing is only accepting manuscript submissions through our electronic system.

General guidelines

  • Although we accept submissions and publish titles worldwide, submissions from Canadian authors are especially welcome.

  • For young adult genres, aged 14+, we require 50,000 to 100,000 words.

  • All submissions need to be well-written, and engaging.

  • We are looking for new and original voices with great stories to tell and great things to share.

  • We will only contact you after a manuscript submission if we think your writing is strong, your story is entertaining and engaging, and if we think there is commercial potential.
