Possible markets: Publishers seeking manuscripts

Call for SubmissionsHere are two opportunities that you might want to examine.

MeeGenius is an app for iPad, Android, and other mobile devices.  The stories are for readers ages 2-8 and combine a reader reading the text, illustration and sound.  The Acquisition editor, Ashley Fedor, formerly worked at Penguin Books.  MeeGenius is looking for stories that are 15-20 pages in length with 20-70 words per page. Writers do not need to provide illustrations.  Find out more and submit online here.

I have a piece that I’m considering for MeeGenius.  It was accepted by a publisher who then went out of business.  Sad, but sad happens.  I like that MeeGenius has books that have been published in print by other publishers.  And, no, I don’t mean fly-by-night.  These books include Frog and Toad, Fancy Nancy and Biscuit. That’s company I’d definitely like to keep.

The other opportunity is with Nickelodeon.  Apparently they have a new program, Script First!, to develop new programing. They are looking for scripts that are 3-5 pages long and is a self-supporting story.  To be eligible, the script must be original, have relatable characters for the core audience of boys and girls ages 6 to 11, and be something that can be animated.  All genres are welcome but it has to be funny.  Find out more about this opportunity here.   The deadline is May 15, 2015.

That’s it for now.  I hope that someone has a manuscript that will work for one of these markets.
