Writing Children's Fiction?
Pushkin Children's to re-run open submission day

Pushkin Children's Books has announced its second open submission initiative, following on from the success of the first round last year, which led to the acquisition of YA title The Collective by Lindsey Whitlock.
The publisher is once again opening its doors to submissions for children's books for a 24-hour period. Pushkin hopes this initiative, led by Sarah Odedina, editor-at-large, will "provide unpublished writers with a golden opportunity to have their work seen by a leading figure in the literary world". The submissions must be for middle-grade readers aged from eight to 12.

The next Open Submission Initiative will take place on 8th January from 00.00pm to 23.59pm. The submission must include a synopsis and the first 10,000 words, plus a short author bio. Entries should be sent to with the subject line 'SARAH ODEDINA OPEN SUBMISSION MATERIAL.'
