Please note that we are fully contactable throughout the entire publishing process and are happy to deal with any general or specific enquiries which you may have.


We aim to provide a personal, affordable and flexible scheme for writers in all genres. We have an ever-growing list of very satisfied author-partners who have not only realised an ambition of seeing their work in print, but who are also assured of a high quality, bespoke product which is actively promoted throughout the UK.


Submission of material on CD, USB memory stick or via e-mail


We are happy to accept electronic files supplied by the above means, but please note the following criteria:


• We use an Apple Macintosh system and therefore you should ensure that your text file(s) are saved as Word.rtf. or, if you are using a current Macintosh system, as a Word.doc. This will ensure the integrity of your intended text styling (ie emboldening, italics, etc.)


• In the case of scanned illustrations and/or photographs, these should be saved as high quality jpeg format.


• Please note that we do not accept any other formats. In order to ensure consistency, a paper version of your work must be supplied to us in the first instance.


Copyright observation

You are required under the terms of our Collaborative Publishing Scheme and Scriptor Guidelines to ensure that material submitted does not infringe any part of the 1988 Copyright Act. It is on this basis that Green Arrow Publishing considers all material submitted for publication. You must inform us where text or illustration credits are required to appear.
