We are CLOSED for submissions!

We are not currently accepting new submissions. Please check back, as submissions will reopen soon.  In the mean time, feel free to explore our submission requirements below.

Submission Requirements

DAwriter300X250We are seeking both fiction (all genres and sub-genres) and non-fiction, not previously published, well-written material that will keep our readers and listeners returning. We offer a supportive and fun environment with an easy to work with editing staff, and you will always retain copyright to the written version of your story. Many series go on to become published paperbacks, eBooks, and audiobooks with royalties paid to authors and narrators. As we grow, we hope to offer additional compensation as well, but it is important that submitting authors want to be a part of something new and special, and enjoy writing beyond a source of revenue.

Before You Submit

Your submission to Big World Network should include the following: 

First: have a finished product, (we are not looking for proposals).

Second: carefully edit your story and have at least one other person edit it. (nothing professional required just try and send us your most polished work).

Third: have a third party or ‘beta reader’ read it for plot continuity. (It’s always good to have a fresh pair of eyes read your work).

To become a series writer

Your submission to Big World Network should include the following:

  1. A basic query letter. Include the following in this letter.
    • Your Pitch should come first. This is a very short (1-2 sentence) description of the major tension plot of your story.
    • Title, genre, word count
    • 2-3 paragraph summary of the story as a whole. Be brief but enticing.
    • Include any pertinent person information last. (Inspiration for the story, other published works, college degrees, etc.)

    If you are unsure how to write a query letter or if you are having a difficult time, there are many tutorials on YouTube.

     

    Here is a good example.

  2. List all social media links. In this market, you must be promoting yourself and your work, so if you haven’t started on this START NOW.
  3. Attach the first 3 chapters of your book. Times New Roman, 12 point font, double spaced and submit as a Microsoft word document.

If accepted during this preliminary stage, you will be asked to provide the remainder of your work, so stories should be complete before submission.

How to Submit

Your submission(s) should be sent via email to Theresa Pocock, Submissions Editor, at submissions and should include a statement that you have read and agree to the linked release form with the current version number HERE.
