Thank you for your interest in VAGABONDS!

While we receive too many pitches each year to respond to them all, we read each of them and deeply appreciate the time and care authors take in preparing them.

Due to high volume and workload, we can only accept pitches within certain time windows. We are currently OPEN for pitches from 10 May until 15 June 2023 [extended] June 23 .

Below you can find information on the process for making pitches to the series. If, after reading it carefully, you have further questions, please email the series editor, Max Haiven, at mhaiven at lakeheadu dot ca.
