Every submission is important to us, but because of the large number of submissions that we receive, we cannot guarantee to reply to all of them.
We believe that for every book, there is the right publisher. Our inclusive philosophy stems from an underpinning belief in group consciousness as a sacred and shared commodity, that expression is for everyone regardless of their level of formal training or writing ability. Please note that by submitting your work to us, you agree to these terms and conditions.
If we cannot offer you a publishing contract, please remember that James Joyce’s Ulysses was judged obscene and rejected by several publishers, as were many other great literary works before they found the right match to bring their work into the world.
James Joyce suffered with eye problems throughout his life. The significance of 2, Grafton Street as the location that he chose when dealing with sight in Ulysses may find its roots in an actual visit to Yeates and Sons opticians which traded at this location from 1840 to 1922.
We Love Imagination
In a scene which appears in the Lestrygonians episode of Ulysses, Leopold Bloom tries on spectacles at Yeates and Sons, 2 Grafton Street, and is challenged to trust his imagination.
At The Leopold Bloom Press, we interested in works that demonstrate imagination. If you can like the ophthalmologist did on 16th June 1904 make us believe in your story so much that we look for ‘a little watch up there on the roof of the bank to test those glasses by,’ as Bloom did in Ulysses, then we would like to read your fiction.
We love fiction of all types, especially historic fiction with a didactic edge.
