Gemma occasionally accepts unsolicited projects for publication. At the moment, we are looking for stories in our Gemma Open Door series for adult literacy. Works should have these characteristics:

  • topics of relevance to adults and young adults improving their reading
  • 10,000 words or fewer
  • clearly identifiable narrative. Tell a story!
  • second- to fourth-grade reading level, simple tenses
  • short sentences and frequent chapter breaks

If you would like to submit a proposal for consideration, please follow the checklist below and send an inquiry to:

  • Working title and an alternative
  • One paragraph synopsis of your work—more is good, less is better.
  • Estimated length and delivery date
  • Audience
  • Table of contents, with a sentence or two describing each chapter
  • Sample chapter rather than a complete manuscript
  • Your biography, briefly, please
  • Marketing opportunities
