ANTHOLOGIES - For In Our Own Aboriginal Voice, Disabled Voices, In Our Own Teen Voice-Please see anthology submission call out page. TEEN / YOUNG ADULT FICTION NOVELS Rebel Mountain Press currently accepts manuscripts of young adult fiction (for ages 13-18) featuring coming of age stories with unique and interesting characters at the crest of defining moments. We seek stories that are off the beaten track; that are unafraid to push the edge. Our goal is to provide teen reading material that is thought-provoking and inspirational. (We do not publish moralizing or religious stories.) Stories that are high adventure are also accepted, as are those for reluctant readers. We especially seek stories with strong, empowering female leads. We also have an interest in publishing books that celebrate the lives of Indigenous people, and those who identify as LGBTQ2+.
Manuscripts of young adult fiction should be approximately 30,000-60,000 words in length.
Manuscripts for young adult reluctant readers should be approximately 12,000-20,000 words in length, and written in simple language with a non-complex structure and a small cast of characters.
At this time, we only accept electronic submissions.
Please include a cover letter (summarizing your publishing history, education, awards, and details of the manuscript), synopsis, and the first 3-4 chapters only, with numbered pages.It may take up to 3 months for our editors to review a manuscript, so please be patient.
