Young Adult Publishers Seeking Submissions

on October 1, 2014

A couple markets for those who write young adult:

Cicada, a young adult magazine, is seeking stories, poems and comics on the theme of Tricksters and Thieves. Send your stories of pirates, charlatans, illusions, deceptions and trickery to editor Marianne Carus. Stories may be up to 9,000 words. Payment is 25 cents a word.  The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2104. Find more details here.

Entangled Teen and Entangled Select is seeking submissions. All stories should have strong romantic elements and be 50K to 100K in length. They are looking for contemporary, historical, science fiction, romantic thrillers, paranormal and Urban fantasy. Guidelines are here.

 Swoon Romance is seeking submissions for a teen romance line. Protagonists are between the ages of 14-19. Word count should fall between 50K-70K. Novels can be set anytime, anywhere – and can be realistic, supernatural, dystopic, historical, comedy, inspirational, suspense or a mash-up of any sort. Stories can be happily ever after…or just happily for now. Girl/boy, girl/girl, boy/boy – just wow us with the intense romance of your story. We can only accept original, completed novels that are not, and have never been under contract with another publisher — and we ask that all submissions be exclusive to us as long as they are on the site. Find all the submission guidelines here.
