Berbay opening up for chapter and junior fiction submissions

From 1 January to 30 April 2020, Berbay will be accepting chapter book and junior fiction submissions for readers between the ages of 6–12.

We’d like to see contemporary narratives, with or without a touch of whimsy, and stories that inspire the imagination. We’re interested in unique voices, unforgettable characters, and authors we can grow. Submissions from new and previously published Australian residents are welcome. (We are not accepting picture books, short stories, poetry, or young adult fiction.)

Authors can submit a cover letter and the first 50 pages of their novel to They’ll receive an automatic email confirming receipt of their project, and if our editorial team is interested in seeing more of their work, we will contact them directly. We kindly ask that authors submit only one project during our open submission window.
