Submission Guidelines

We frequently receive inquiries about getting published. WAY OF THE RAIL doesn’t accept unsolicited manuscripts, we can offer the following advice on getting your materials printed.

Your local library is a great resource for aspiring writers. There, you’ll find a wealth of information on writing and the publishing process. Three guides that are particularly useful for Canadian writers are The Book Trade in Canada, the Canadian Publishers Directory, and The Canadian Writer’s Market.

When you feel that your work is ready to go to print, you should look for a literary agent. An agent can objectively advise you on your work and on the most suitable publisher to approach with your manuscript. What’s more, an agent can negotiate the best deal with the publisher on your behalf. A comprehensive listing of Canadian literary agents can be found in The Canadian Writer’s Guide published by Fitzhenry and Whiteside. We wish you the best of luck in your endeavour and hope you have every success in placing your work.
