Our mission is to publish high quality writing from authors who, in a highly competitive marketplace, might not otherwise have a chance of being seen, recognized or having their shorter works published for consumption by a very selective audience. We are specifically interested in publishing essays by dedicated and knowledgeable writers who produce work of the highest caliber but are still trying to gain a foothold in the world of literature and learned writing. In an increasingly profit-orientated marketplace dominated by a few major publishers, where a portfolio of published works is considered a vital asset, works of shorter length are often relegated to anthologies and a limited number of monthly periodicals. Viktoria Michaelis Limited offers both new and experienced writers the chance for their shorter works to be published in book form, often for the first time, and prove themselves against more seasoned writers who have already made their name and who, for many, seem to be accepted for publication simply because of their name and the reputation which their name brings with it.
Our books are simple but effective, carefully laid out to ensure that it is the contents which are brought to the fore, the work of the writer rather than that of the printer, cover designer or publisher. They contain carefully crafted, well researched and knowledgeable works from people who truly care about what they write, who have an interest in their subject, in their characters, in the way they use words, and who do not shy from interacting with their audience or covering controversial subjects. All our titles are held in the major English university libraries.
We welcome new ideas and suggestions for works as well as completed manuscripts for consideration by our editors. Authors are requested to read through the submission guidelines – and perhaps sample some of the works already published – and contact us, initially through the contact page, with their ideas.
