HEAT, Australia's international literary magazine, is open for submissions.

For more information on submissions to Giramondo and HEAT, please visit our website: https://giramondopublishing.com/submissions/.

Entries for The Novel Prize are now closed. For more information, visit https://giramondopublishing.com/novelprize/.

Giramondo Publishing accepts unsolicited book submissions for a limited period each year. Submissions will reopen later in 2022.

HEAT, Giramondo's literary magazine, is now welcoming submissions of fiction, essays, hybrid forms and translated works. Our intention is to publish the best work being written in Australia and internationally, gathering innovative literary perspectives across borders.

HEAT is published six times a year in a slim, intimate format, that throws sharp focus on the work of the featured authors. Writers looking to submit to HEAT should familiarise themselves with prior issues of the magazine and consider subscribing

Please know, we do not publish reviews or opinion pieces, at least in the conventional sense. We are, however, interested in writing that engages with other writers and their works. We’re also intrigued by obsessions and curiosities, lost or secret histories, literary quests and writing that brings research to life. We encourage writing which gives full rein to the author’s voice, without the restriction of a word limit.  

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept material that has appeared elsewhere in the English language. We are also closed to poetry submissions at this time. 

Our submissions portal will be open for the month of June. If your work isn’t ready in time for this deadline, we intend to open again in the future.
