DO YOU WANT TO TURN GREEN?
Our Project - Little Green Book
As well as taking submissions from creatives in the form of short stories/poems/art and photographs. We plan to include or do an additional book where we can help you turn green?
Dream’s Edge Publishing is linking up with other publishing houses and many writers to develop, in 2023, a great story/poetry/art collection about the environment.
The idea is to celebrate mother nature and the beauty of the world around us. At the same time, we plan to show the environmental threat our world is facing via the stories, poems and artworks that are submitted.
The collection won’t be self-righteous or in any way preachy. We are aiming for an entertaining, educational and enlightening tone.
We’ve already had some top writers submit work and agree to submit stories, poems and art but we would really like more. The more the merrier as they say.
Actress, Katy Manning, probably most famous as Jo Grant alongside Jon Pertwee’s Doctor Who, has agreed to write the foreword for the book and appear on the front cover.
Submissions of new, unpublished work only will be accepted. Copyright is retained by the contributor, but publishing rights belong to Dream’s Edge Publishing.
Please submit all written works as a clean, unformatted word document.
If your work is accepted for publication, Dreams Edge Publishing retain the right to edit or amend your work as necessary.
Once your work has been accepted for publication, you are not allowed to republish it elsewhere for six months following the date of publication of our book. You will need a commercial release from us in order to do so.
We will contact you to advise you that your work has been accepted for publication, after which no correspondence will be entered into. You retain the right to withdraw your work no later than 28th February 2023. Due to printing deadlines, after this date, you are unable to request withdrawal of your work.
Publication date of the Little Book of Green is anticipated within the first quarter of 2023, although Dream’s Edge Publishing retain the right to amend or delay publication for any reason.
You do not receive royalties or any form of renumeration for any work accepted for submission, although as a contributor, you will receive a discount on any books you wish to purchase as ‘author copies.’
If your work is accepted by us for publication, we do ask that you don’t re-publish anywhere else for at least six months after our book is published.
Stories can be up to 10k word count, poems any length, you can submit up to five works of art (in jpeg form please do not send physical works).
All contributors whose work is accepted by us for publication will be contacted but no further contact will be made apart from that.
We hope to publish in the first quarter of 2023 but release may be put back.
Closing date for all submissions is 1st January 2023.
No adult content, extreme violence, offensive content will be published and no nude or offensive art will be published either, the publishers’ decision is final.
So get thinking of the world around us and the environment as a whole and get creative with stories, poems and even art. We look forward to hearing from you and, if this goes well, we hope to make it an annual thing.
We at Dream’s Edge Publishing, Christine, Graeme and Sandra care about our environment and the world as a whole. We know you do too, so let’s show the planet.
