Scotland Street Press: vacancies, internships and submissions.

There are currently no permanent vacancies at Scotland Street Press.

Work experience and internships:

Because we are a small independent publisher, we host unpaid Work Experience Placements on a regular basis. Please note that these are very popular, and it is often necessary to book this a long time in advance. We take on UK and overseas students in various subjects including Publishing, English, History and Marketing throughout the year, for periods ranging from 1 week to 6 months or more. To find out more please contact us.

Internship Policy:



If you think you have written a book that may fit with Scotland Street Press’s publishing programme, and would like to make a submission to us, please send:

  • A clear synopsis of up to 250 words
  • Which genre you would categorise it as
  • Sample chapters or manuscript
  • A short biography
  • A pre-paid addressed envelope for returning your manuscript should it be unsuccessful

Please try to ensure that everything you send can be easily stored together – for example, held together with a paperclip or all put in a cardboard folder.

Please note that we cannot accept electronic submissions, only paper hard copies. Submissions or proposals sent by email will not be accepted.

Please note, if you do not enclose a pre-paid envelope, we will assume that you are happy for us to recycle your manuscript. Scotland Street Press cannot take responsibility for any items sent to us. Please allow 3-6 months for our response. We do aim to respond to everyone who submits a piece of work but if you have not heard from us by then, you can assume your submission was unsuccessful.
