Editor Lee Harris of Angry Robot has announced the publisher’s plans to consider unagented, unsolicited manuscripts during the month of March, 2011. A team of readers will “diligently work through every submission received,” with the best to be considered for publication. If “Open Door Month” is successful, Angry Robot may implement additional one-month open reading periods in 2011 and beyond.
Harris said, “We’re delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to unpublished and unrepresented novelists. There are a lot of exciting authors out there, just waiting to be discovered, and we’d like to be able to help them kick-start their careers.”
