Editorial Focus

Gold Wake holds two Open Reading periods per year, held in the spring and fall, and open to full-length manuscripts in all genres. We do not charge a separate contest/submission fee—if you buy a Gold Wake book through Submittable, you get a free manuscript submission. This supports our writers, gets you a book, and is more ethical than charging a reading fee. We publish roughly 4–6 titles per year from the submissions we receive. If your book is selected, you can count on a positive, personal experience.
