Epigram Books is a Singaporean publisher established in 2011 as an imprint for exquisitely designed and thought-provoking books.

We are keen to read and publish new writing by Singaporean authors and authors writing about Singapore. We accept and evaluate full manuscripts all year round and invite you to submit your work here.

We strongly encourage you not to send a hard copy of your manuscript to us—a soft, electronic copy will suffice. While necessary care will be exercised, Epigram Books assumes no responsibility for the loss or damage of materials received (whether sent electronically or by mail). Please ensure that you have kept a copy for yourself as we practice a zero-return policy. 

We will acknowledge receipt of all manuscripts. However, as we receive many manuscripts, please give our editors up to 6 months to revert to you regarding your manuscript. If you do not hear from us within 6 months, you may assume that we are not keen to publish your book.

To better present your manuscript, please refer to our Notes on Formatting and Punctuation before you submit your work. With the exception of nonfiction works, all manuscripts must be submitted in full. 

If you are a Singaporean, Singaporean PR or Singapore-born author submitting for our annual EPIGRAM BOOKS FICTION PRIZE, the submissions procedures differ. Please read about the prize details here.
