@Carol Rose, did you notice the contradiction between the terms on the main page and those on the submission page? The main page said submissions were welcome from anywhere in the world, but the submission page itself had a check box to confirm you were based in the UK or the ROI and a note saying you must be a resident of one of them.
Did you check the box?
That is odd. I don't know what to say. Well, if the box didn't show up for you, I certainly wouldn't worry about it.That didn't even show up on my end. The only check mark was whether the manuscript was finished. Interesting.

I was nosing around out of interest, but I don't think I fit their requirements, so I'm not going to submit. I've actually cancelled the submittable account I created, so I can't go back and see if the UK/ROI check box still appears for me. But like I said, if it wasn't there for you, it's obviously not an issue.
Best of luck, Carol!
Thank you very much for putting this link up here Kitty. I've submitted my application, complete with justification for a white hetero Anglo-Saxon university educated male can still be disadvantaged - by age. I'll post what I sent in the proper place so that people can tell me I got it all wrong and haven't a chance!
What did you put in the (max 500 words) box asking in what way you were disadvantaged?Goodness, I didn't even take that from it. That I had to justify myself, or draw attention to something as arbitrary as my age. I'm 60 years old and wasn't published until I was 54. Who cares, and what's that got to do with any of this?
If they like my submission, great! If they don't, they don't. I've had minimal feedback on it, and that's because I haven't sought much yet. It's not even finished. I haven't touched it for months, to be honest. I saw a chance to get something in front of one of the BIG FIVE and took it. A positive attitude goes a long way. Just sayin...

I'm not worried about it. If it's a goof up on their part, it's their mistake, not mine. Thanks!
Want to swap reviews - mine's very different too.
Good luck, Anne.
Thank you, ladies. I was told by @Emurelda, they had their own typo on the website : The Future 'Bookshelvd'.
