Tu Books - Call For Submissions

Tu Books
Call for Submissions: Diverse MG/YA

Call for Submissions

Tu Books publishes speculative fiction for children and young adults featuring diverse characters and settings. Our focus is on well-told, exciting, adventurous fantasy, science fiction, and mystery novels featuring people of color set in worlds inspired by non-Western folklore or culture. We welcome Western settings if the main character is a person of color.

We are looking specifically for stories for both middle grade (ages 8-12) and young adult (ages 12-18) readers. (We are not looking for picture books, chapter books, or short stories. Please do not send submissions in these formats.)

For more information on how to submit, please see our submission guidelines at We are not accepting unagented email submissions at this time.

What we’re particularly interested in seeing lately: Asian steampunk, any African culture, contemporary African-American stories, Latino/a stories, First Nations/Native American/Aboriginal fantasy or science fiction written by tribal members, original postapocalyptic worlds, historical fantasy or mystery set in a non-Western setting. Please note that while our focus remains on main characters that are people of color, we strongly welcome GLBTQ characters as well.

We look forward to reading your book!

Special Submission Call for our Valentine's Anthology - BE MINE, AGAIN

We would like to see stories about people who have lost love and now have a second chance.

Are they divorced? Were they high school sweethearts?

Maybe they were lovers - yes, even a hot one night stand - long ago and now fate (or Cupid) has brought them together once more.

Stories for the anthology should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words. The heat rating can range from sweet to erotic.

Please note, we will not accept any story with depraved or illegal acts (such as incest, necrophilia, rape, pedophilia, bestiality, etc) and we are currently not looking for GLBT, BDSM, M/M, F/F, or Ménage.

Closing Date is December 5th!
