As Memories Fade
We are aware that there are many writers who have not had the opportunity to get their stories published. We know there is a great wealth of talent that has never been recognised, which is why we have introduced the Child's Eye Award for children’s literature.
The award offers the chance for an author to work with our team of editors and designers to get their book published and for it to be promoted in the marketplace alongside our other titles.
This is a 2-stage process. At first, we will only require the entry form, a brief synopsis of your story and a sample chapter or a few pages of your book.
We will read each application and if we think the book idea could work for Child's Eye then we will invite you to submit your full story – with illustrations if they apply.
All stage 2 entries will go to our panel who will select one that will go forward for publishing.
All stage 2 entries will receive feedback from the panel.
Send us a completed entry form and a synopsis of the story supported by up to 750 words of the text.
If the book is intended to be illustrated, please include some sample drawings.
If your story is short-listed, we will ask for the full story as a pdf with any illustrations attached as jpegs.
The author retains the copyright of any material submitted.
We are looking for stories that have the clear potential to be commercially viable and can stand alongside our other Child's Eye titles.
We will favour stories that link in with the Child's Eye branding.
Stories can be fiction or non-fiction.

The successful author will be appointed with a commissioning editor who will work with the author throughout the following stages:
