From Meredith Rich at Bloomsbury USA:
Here at Bloomsbury we are launching a new digital fiction imprint called Bloomsbury Spark that will be targeted to teens and crossover adult readers. The imprint is due to launch later this year, and we are holding an open call for submissions. I was hoping you would be willing to spread the word to your MA and MFA students and others that might be interested.
The criteria for manuscript consideration is:
· 25,000-60,000 words (English language only)
· Word document or pdf format only
· Target age: 14+
· Genres: All FICTION categories including but not limited to romance, mystery, thriller, paranormal, dystopian, historical, contemporary, fantasy
Submissions can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
More information can be found: www.bloomsbury.com/spark
If we are interested in acquiring a manuscript, we will be in touch with the author. All Bloomsbury Spark books would be contracted for digital rights, with a first option for print editions.
I’d be happy to walk you through more specifics of the imprint if you’re interested. Many thanks!
