Prototype anthology

Submissions to next year's issue of our annual anthology, PROTOTYPE 4 (July 2022), will open in January 2022. Please check here for updates.

Many thanks indeed to everyone who submitted their work for this year's issue; we were overwhelmed by the number and quality of submissions, and look forward to seeing what next year brings our way.


Please email your proposal to admin[at], ensuring that all attachments are in PDF or Microsoft Word format.

Please include a general description and synopsis of the work, plus a sample. The sample should not exceed 20 pages; we will request the full manuscript if we are interested in reading more.

Please also include a brief biography and a list of any previously published work.

We would also like to know why you are interested in Prototype publishing your work, and recommend reading some of our past publications to confirm whether we are the right publisher for you.

Responses and feedback

We will aim to respond to your email within 3 months, and would be grateful if you could wait patiently for this time to pass.

We cannot offer detailed feedback if your submission is unsuccessful, but will endeavour to suggest alternative avenues for publication whenever we can.
