Bangor University’s aspiring authors are wanted for their book submissions.
Salad Pages launched in August this year to help authors, within the age range of 22 and under, who may find it difficult to have a book accepted by a publisher due to lack of experience.
The publishing house is now calling for manuscripts from Bangor University students.
Salad Pages is the child of husband and wife duo Matt and Claire Napoli, who have a desire to make the process of publishing a book a positive experience. Claire has worked in publishing for more than a decade, and Matt is the Commercial Director who has background in the legal world.
Claire, 33, Publishing Director of Salad Pages, said: “We know only too well university students have amazing book ideas and very often will have committed their thought-provoking concepts to the page. “However, we know from experience how difficult it is for young authors to get noticed. We set up Salad Pages to celebrate the amazing, talented young authors out there.
“After all, if you look at some of the most successful authors, like Stephen King and Danielle Steel, they started writing when they were 22 and under.
“We care about our authors and we really enjoy what we do, which shows in our work. Publishing with Salad Pages is exciting and there is nothing better than encouraging new talent.
“We want to see young writers given the prominence they deserve. This is a new age of books.”
When Salad Pages accept a submission from a writer, they will be personally mentored and given all the support and expertise they need to get their book published.
However, once authors exceed the age limit, they will be invited to become mentors to other budding writers and encourage the next generation of talented authors.
Claire said: “Salad Pages really is championing the young writer.
“We will support them right the way through, from developing their manuscript to publishing, sales and marketing.
“Our authors are our stars and we put them right at the heart of the whole publishing process.
“It really is an exciting time for writers. Everybody has a thrilling story to tell and we want to read as many as possible from Bangor University, especially as it holds a special place in our hearts.
“We know there is a wealth of talent at Bangor so get in touch. We’d really love to hear from you.”
