About

Like This is an independent press based in Manchester committed to publishing high quality and beautifully designed books that do things just a little bit differently. We are particularly interested in poetry, prose poetry, fragments, stories (the more curious the better), interviews, essays, and books as objects. There is an editorial leaning towards experimental traditions. We want work that is formally unusual, questioning, unexpected, and challenging; work that is interested in thinking about the hows and whys of literary practice, the place of books in the world, the relationship between writing and living, art and life, between literature, art, philosophy, religion, science, history, medicine. We especially like work that blends innovation with accessibility and wonder. Currently we specialise in publishing pamphlets and short volumes, as well as limited edition books-in-boxes (consisting, usually, of three inter-connected pamphlets or two volumes collected in beautiful hand-printed boxes). All of our books are also available for download as ebooks.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For book publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
