Young readers’ fiction and nonfiction

Middle Grade work features diverse explorations of identity and personhood, with an emphasis on creating supportive communities, friends, and families.

Young Adult work meets young adults with voices and characters who are exploring their identities and changing bodies, and sorting through the confusing and often unhealthy social and personal pressures to which they are exposed.

New Adult work is for audiences who want to explore how the big social challenges and controversy regarding race, sexuality, access, and more meet up with their everyday lives. We’re seeking fiction and nonfiction that is grounded, daring, emotionally rich, and honest -- bold stories that dig into what is in front of us, but is not being talked about; stories in which the journey is just as important as the destination.

Hurricane Island calls for submissions.
