Submissions

Your Writing

What sort of books are we looking for

Fiction, non-fiction or memoirs with a gripping hook.

We Are Not Taking Submissions We are just getting started. And we have our quota already for now. But since you are here, let us share something about the sort of writing we may be interested in. You see, we believe that for every book, there is the right publisher. The magic happens when they come together. Please note that by submitting your work to us, you agree to these terms and conditions.

Just an idea: The Leopold Bloom Press is a full service publisher. New writers should be prepared to invest as much in promoting their book as they did in writing it. Therefore, we suggest establishing yourself on social media now if you have not already done so. Instagram, facebook, Twitter and Tiktok are valuable channels to create a profile.

Never give up on your writing. Remember that James Joyce’s Ulysses was rejected. It was cast off as obscene by several publishers, and by the esteemed literati of the day. It was eventually published in Paris by Sylvia Beach, someone who had never before published one single book in her life.

James Joyce was a client of Yeates and Son Opticians. In 2018, the pair of glasses worn by him during the writing of Ulysses sold at auction in Dublin along with the original Yeates and Son spectacle case. These glasses, like all Yeates and Son glasses were manufactured at 2 Grafton Street, now The Leopold Bloom Press.

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, our address. Bloom is challenged to trust his imagination.

At The Leopold Bloom Press, we are interested in works that activate the imagination.
