HarmonyInk Press Young Author Challenge (2017)
Tue Feb 21, 2017 4:45 am
As stated on their
, Harmony Ink Press is an imprint publishing Teen and New Adult fiction featuring significant personal growth of unforgettable characters across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. [They] seek strong, authentic voices telling thought-inspiring stories with positive outcomes that explore all the facets of young adult, teen, and new adult life—between the ages of 14 and 21—across a wide range of subgenres. [Their] published works reach into a wide range of reader-favorite genres, including fantasy, mystery, paranormal, romance, science fiction, and more.
They are currently closed to general submissions, but they do have something called the
Young Author Challenge
, running every year.
Submission deadline for 2017 is May 1 (to be published in October), and here's what the page I linked says about the requirements:
· seeking stories between 2,000 – 10,000 words
· main characters should be 14 – 21 years old and can be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or anywhere else on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, including still in the process of working out their sexual/gender identity
· the story should portray positive LGBTQ+ characters who grow or change for the better in some way
· authors need to be between the ages of 14 – 21 (for those under 17, a parent or a legal guardian will have to sign the contract if they accept the story)
This is a paid opportunity (flat pay based on length), each submission is reviewed either way, and copyright remains with the authors.
Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with HarmonyInk. I just thought about submitting to them at one point before they closed for general submissions, and now I came across them again and realised this challenge could be a great thing for those of you lucky enough to not have
turned 22 and thus stopped being young enough
