Call for submissions:
Children's short stories, ages 5 to 12.

What we are looking for

We're seeking children's stories aimed at age ranges between 5 and 12. We're looking for stories written by authors who know children and what children want to read. We want storytellers who can capture a child's imagination and who also know the children's book market, know what's original and understand what's interesting and appropriate for children of the age their stories are aimed at. We consider stories of all genres as long as kids will love them!

We pay for selected stories starting at $0.05 per word with a minimum of $200.

We encourage the submission of previously published as well as new stories. If you're looking for a way to make some money from your back catalogue or to get those stories in front of new readers, we would like to hear from you.

Submission process

Please initially contact us using the form below, which has two parts.

Firstly, we'd like to know a bit about you and your publication history. It doesn't have to be comprehensive, just enough to introduce yourself. Please note that, for this call, we are looking for authors with at least some publication history. If you are a new author, we would love to hear from you in our general submissions. If you have any questions, feel free to include them here also.

Secondly, we'd like to hear about the story or stories you're thinking of submitting. We don't want a full summary, just a brief, descriptive introduction to the story or stories.

We will contact you by email within two weeks. Please ensure your email address is correct.

Thank you for your interest in East of the Web and we look forward to hearing from you!
