Hello and welcome


Thank you for trusting us with your work and welcome to Dollarbird's online submissions management portal. 

Dollarbird accepts unsolicited manuscripts with Asian, particularly Southeast Asian, themes from authors and agents.

  • Please include with your submission an outline of your work, a brief bio and a list of three comparative titles in the market.
  • Please be aware we only accept full manuscripts.
  • Don't stress too much about formatting, we just want to read what you have written.
  • Please note we prefer Word docs as we often read submissions on a Kindle, but PDFs are acceptable too.

We receive a vast number of submissions and are not able to respond to all approaches. If you do not hear from anybody within 12 weeks, regretfully that means we are unable to take on your manuscript. Dollarbird does not offer a manuscript appraisal service. Due to the large number of submissions we receive, we are unable to offer a critique of rejected submissions. There are plenty of specialist manuscript appraisal agencies available, most of which have an online presence and can be found using regular internet search engines. 


Thank you again for your submission – we can't wait to read it!
