WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
STORYMIX is keen to work with Black and Minority Ethnic writers and illustrators who like working collaboratively.
We ask creatives to submit their writing submission on Submittable and fill in the form which includes a request for contact details and a short CV of writing and/or illustration experience.
We also ask for a 10 page sample of your writing or a link to your illustrations, before we can add a creative to our database.
This information helps us pair the right creative with the right project.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING
It doesn’t matter if you have been a writer for many years or are just starting out. What does matter is that you love telling stories and have an engaging voice which is appealing to children.
You also need to be responsive and open to the editorial process and able to work to a brief and a deadline!
MORE STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW!
STORYMIX owns all the rights to the concepts developed.
Writers and illustrators are paid to sample and receive an advance and a share of the royalty for each book.
Our long-term ambition is that our writers and illustrators will also go on to secure their own publishing deals and meaningfully change the make up of the publishing landscape.
