Submission | Tanglewood Publishing
We accept both agent scripts and uncalled for. It is our pleasure to find an unreleased, gifted writer with a beautiful script, or an artist whose latest work is not recognised by other publishing houses. However, we get several hundred and several hundred scripts, of which only a few are selected.
Whilst we are publishing for all ages, from infants to teenagers, we are most interested in extending Tanglewood's offer of literature and narratives (history or biography). We' re open to most types of literature as long as the script has genuine 3-D character and a powerful storyline.
A further point of a script that would lead us to a more detailed examination would be the variety of contents, but above all the writers. After all, it' s emotionally deep, but we're not looking for a script that teaches more than a great one. Childrens textbooks may be short, but the rule of good literacy still applies.
Be sure you know exactly what makes reading a textbook so enjoyable. Ensure that your storyline is a novel that children want to see, not just what grown-ups want children to do. An article on eating habits is not the childish product Tanglewood is sensing for.
When you write a novel and haven't been around a child in a long time, make sure your dialog is up to date. We' re given many proper scripts, spoilt by outdated dialogues. You can tell that in all the ego stuff we do. A lot of individuals submit scripts that tell the tale of a particular relation in their life, the most frequent being with a child, grandchild or domestic animal of the whole household.
Whereas these should be kept and kept as inherited pieces from the families, they are generally not suitable for publication on a general public intranet. When you write to inform kids about a topic - especially about a handicap - we are not the for you. They can try to contact a charity or organisation for the respective handicap or a medical/educational publishing house.
When you write a tale to help kids cope with a less than universally applicable problem (my nephew's finger was bitten off by a fiery Squirrel, and I want to help other kids whose fingers were bitten off by fiery Squirrels), we won't be interested.
One of the most important elements of a publisher is its scale. If you are not an Illustrator yourself, do not submit an illustration with a script. Publications want to choose the illustrated artists for their work. Remember that the childrens literature industry is fiercely contested, and there are many good authors who try to get their work out.
To decide that you want to be a child writer is similar to decide that you want to be a filmstar. Few fortunate and gifted people will make it, and many gifted and meritorious writers will not. Unless you have been disheartened, please send complete textbook manuals or an inquiry note with example sections for medium or young adults' books to:
In your paper, please provide your name and e-mail-adress, not just the inquiry form. Please ask the illustrator to provide a hyperlink to their work published on-line, whether it is a website, blogs or public relations channels.
