Schoolwide, Inc. submission opportunity!

Here’s some info about Schoolwide, Inc.’s submission opportunity that was recently shared on the SCBWI MD/DE/WV page by our lovely co-regional advisor, Sue Peters!


Submission opportunity from Susan Tierney, longtime Editor in Chief of Children’s Writer and the Institute of Children’s Literature’s Writer’s Guide and the market directories. She has now become Acquisitions Editor at Schoolwide, Inc. and shared this with SCBWI:

This educational publisher of reading, writing, and grammar curriculum products, and professional development resources, is looking for submissions of books, stories, and articles that support reading and writing for children from kindergarten to grade eight for a digital classroom library.

Of interest are fiction and nonfiction picture books, concept books, early  readers, chapter books, middle-grade and early YA books, articles, essays, short stories, poetry, poetry collections, and plays. Fiction may be contemporary, realistic, historical, multicultural, science fiction, fantasy, mystery, adventure, fairy or folk tales, verse novels, or rhyming books. Nonfiction sought includes informational/expository, biography/profile, narrative procedure (how-to), creative nonfiction, personal narratives or memoir, essays, opinion pieces, primary sources/reference  books. Subject categories include science, history, social studies, language and literature—and any subject that is age-appropriate and would encourage independent reading. Not interested in preK or older YA.

Email only to, with author contact information; website address, if any; title of the work; word or page count; targeted age/grade level; and a brief synopsis or outline in the message body. Attach (Microsoft Word only) the completed work and a résumé or list of writing credits. Indicate if the submission is unpublished, self-published, or previously published, and if so, by whom. Place “Manuscript Submission, SCBWI” in the subject line.

Schoolwide will accept (1) previously published materials for which the author holds rights. For these book, story, or article submissions, please also indicate the publisher, date of publication, and if applicable, whether an illustrator holds rights to the artwork (illustrators would receive the same royalty arrangements, if interested); (2) completed manuscripts of original, unpublished work.

Royalty. Responds in six months, if interested.


Good luck to those who submit! Happy writing and drawing, everyone! :)

About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at Write, Run, Rejoice and As the Eraser Burns. In the past, she's been a waitress, bartender, telemarketer, secretary, golf course cook, real estate agent, and during her broke college days, one of those costumed characters at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she decided to pursue her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
