At New York Comic Con we were delighted to attend the offical press launch of Her Universe Press. Her Universe Press will be an imprint to provide an opportunity for new and aspiring female writers to have their voices heard and to see their work professionally published.
Here is a gallery of photos we took at the launch.
Her Universe Press are looking for the following:
Audience Range: tween, young adult or adult.
Stories that match the spirit of the Her Universe brand: empowering, hopeful, exciting, adventurous.
Word Count: 60,000 words or longer for novels. Fewer pages are acceptable only if it is non-fiction.
Genre: We’re accepting anything under the broad umbrella of science fiction and fantasy that features a positive, empowering message/storyline with a focus on a female protagonist. We realize that’s a very wide net, so here are a few specific types of novels we tend to enjoy and would like to see submitted:
The Hunger Games, Divergent, Spiderwick Chronicles, Harry Potter, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
We do consider reprints/reissues of previously published/self-published books.
We will be supporting Ashley and her team at Her Universe Press on this amazing intiative, so look out for lots more coverage here on Jedi News.
