Romance Includes You

Harlequin is interested in publishing more romance stories by authors in underrepresented communities so that readers see themselves reflected in the authors and stories we publish.

We’re always looking for talent and we welcome all authors to submit their romance stories anytime via Harlequin.Submittable.com. You don’t need an agent to submit your work.

As part of our outreach to authors who are underrepresented in publishing, we welcome you to use the #RomanceIncludesYou hashtag to help editors easily see your story for review. Underrepresented voices include, but are not limited to, authors who identify as Black, Indigenous or People of Color (BIPOC), members of LGBTQ+ communities, marginalized ethnic and religious cultures, and people with disabilities and neurodiversity.

Go to Harlequin.Submittable.com to submit your story and include the hashtag #RomanceIncludesYou with your manuscript title.
