Emby Kids, a new imprint of Emby Press, is looking for submissions for its first anthology called The Emby Bestiary.
From their web site: “An Emby Bestiary is looking for . . . yarns about monsters that will make a big impression on young imaginations. They can be good monsters that help upon a tale of discovery or evil monsters that lurk in a cautionary tale.”
The creatures themselves must be original and the stories must be suitable for midde graders.
