Do you know if you have to be a certain age (ie. 18+) to publish a novel in the UK?
I'm writing a novel at the moment and my ultimate goal, as is for every aspiring novelist, is to get it published, but the only thing is I'm not 18 yet. Would that matter?
Hi Daniella, It's not something I have heard of. I am sure you can publish a book or novel at any age. The boy who wrote Eragon about a dragon was only seventeen when he wrote it, but I don't know if he is British or not. But I think the rule is the same anywhere. I suppose you would have to be careful of the content, i.e. adult themes, but apart from that, go for it! and good luck. cheers Nell
The age of the author is not likely to be an obstacle to publishing any literary project. But there may be legal ramifications if the author is not old enough to sign a binding contract. In the USA and in New York State in particular, I think you must be 21 years old or legally emancipated in order to enter into a contract.
Good luck with your project. I wish you much success.
