I’m an aspiring or professional writer/illustrator. How do I submit my work to you for consideration?

We want to hear your voice! Send your work to ideas@sunbird.com following the guidelines below. We accept agented and un-agented submissions. Please indicate if it is a simultaneous submission. Writers and illustrators must be 18 years or older. All submissions must be in English.

  • If you are a writer, please send your unpublished story in the body of the email or as an attachment (.doc or PDF) for review by our editorial and design team. Please let us know why your story is meaningful to you, how it’s relevant/impactful to your intended audience, how it’s timely (or timeless) yet different from other published titles, and why you are the ideal person to write it!
  • If you are a writer-illustrator, please also attach images (3-5 jpegs or 1 PDF under 5MB; no website or portfolio links please).
  • If you are an illustrator who is interested in working with us but not a writer, please send sample images per the above instructions.
