Call for Submissions: Diverse MG/YA
« on: November 17, 2011, 11:26:44 AM »
Hey everyone! My name is Kheryn Callender, and I'm an intern at Lee and Low's newest imprint, Tu Books.

Tu Books publishes young adult and children’s fiction, focusing on adventurous fantasy, science fiction, and mystery novels featuring people of color set in worlds inspired by non-Western folklore or culture. Currently, Tu Books is particularly interested in discovering new writers of color.

Check out the call below. For more information on Lee and Low and Tu Books, please visit our website at www.leeandlow.com. We look forward to hearing back from you!

Call for Submissions

Tu Books publishes speculative fiction for children and young adults featuring diverse characters and settings. Our focus is on well-told, exciting, adventurous fantasy, science fiction, and mystery novels featuring people of color set in worlds inspired by non-Western folklore or culture. We welcome Western settings if the main character is a person of color.

We are looking specifically for stories for both middle grade (ages 8-12) and young adult (ages 12-18) readers. (We are not looking for picture books, chapter books, or short stories. Please do not send submissions in these formats.)

For more information on how to submit, please see our submission guidelines at http://www.leeandlow.com/p/tu_submissions.mhtml. We are not accepting unagented email submissions at this time.

What we’re particularly interested in seeing lately: Asian steampunk, any African culture, contemporary African-American stories, Latino/a stories, First Nations/Native American/Aboriginal fantasy or science fiction written by tribal members, original postapocalyptic worlds, historical fantasy or mystery set in a non-Western setting. Please note that while our focus remains on main characters that are people of color, we strongly welcome GLBTQ characters as well.

We look forward to reading your book!
