Just in case you missed the news, Jonathan Cape is open for submissions throughout June. Cape does not ordinarily welcome unsolicited submissions, so if you have a novel, a novella or a collection of short stories that is ready for submission, this might be your chance. All you need to do is email an initial fifty pages of prose fiction and a covering paragraph to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jonathan Cape started out as an independent publisher in 1921 and is now an imprint of Penguin Random House. After last year's merger, the conglomerate became the largest trade book publisher in the world. They publish A. Igoni Barret, Zadie Smith, Ian McEwan, A.L Kennedy and many others.

What She Thinks: You should give this a try even if the novel or collection is not yet pitch perfect. You could polish the first fifty pages, send that in, keep your fingers crossed and keep working hard on the other sections of the novel. Best of luck!
