Harlequin Welcomes More Submissions from Black Authors

The romance writing and reading community includes people of all backgrounds, communities and cultures who share an enjoyment of stories that celebrate love and happiness. Harlequin is committed to bringing readers a wide range of stories that reflect our diverse society.

We want to publish more diverse and inclusive voices and stories. We welcome all authors to the Harlequin community and, at this time, we are reaching out to especially welcome and invite story submissions from Black writers for Harlequin’s romance lines.

There’s no time limit on this call for submissions. You can submit your manuscript for consideration whenever the time is right for you. It can be an #ownvoices story or another story you want to tell. Please include the #RomanceIncludesYou hashtag with your title and submit to the romance line best suited to your story. We will offer our editorial feedback within 60 days.

Information on Harlequin series romance, including writing guidelines and how to submit your story, can be found at Harlequin.Submittable.com. Writing guidelines and submission information for Carina Press, our digital-first imprint, are found here. You do not have to be represented by an agent to submit.

We look forward to reading your love stories!
