FAQs

How can I get permission to use Prototype material?

If you are interested in acquiring the rights to one of our titles, or would like to publish an extract from one of our publications, please contact jess[at]prototypepublishing.co.uk.

Can I get a job at Prototype?

There are no current vacancies at Prototype, and we are unable to offer work experience or internships at the moment.

Can I submit my manuscript to Prototype?

We are currently accepting submissions and proposals for works that fall into any of our four types: poetry / prose / interdisciplinary projects / anthologies.

Please refer to the guidelines on our submissions page.

How does Prototype charge shipping?

Our shipping rates are charged according to the size and weight of the item and the region we are shipping to. Each type of item is assigned a flat rate for shipping to UK, European or Rest of World addresses, plus an additional amount for multiple items, which is calculated per item.

We keep our postage prices as low as possible, and we pay the merchant fees rather than transferring them on to our customers. Unfortunately postage prices are constantly increasing, and we can only apologise for some of the high prices, particularly for international shipping.

Does Prototype publish ebooks?

None of our publications are available as ebooks at the moment.

How can I buy a book that is sold out on the Prototype website?

If a book is marked as sold out on our website, it is unlikely that any more copies will become available. However, please feel to email us at admin[at]prototypepublishing.co.uk in case we know of any copies available elsewhere or can direct you to a bookshop with copies still in stock.

How can I follow up on an order?
