We Want Illustrators Too!

For every story we publish from new writers, we are looking for up and coming illustrators to feature alongside our pages too.

Please submit pieces inspired by the season of SPRING (for a middle grade, teen or YA audience). This could be an illustration or piece of writing set during spring, or set during an occasion that falls within this season, such as Easter, Holi, Mother’s Day, Ramadan or something completely different. We are excited to see your interpretations of this season.

Please send submissions, and any further questions, to: paperboundmagazine@outlook.com.

Book Reviews/Letters

We are also keen to publish book reviews from readers. If you’ve read a book for Middle Grade or Young Adults that you just couldn’t put down, we’d love to hear about it.

Please send your reviews to paperboundmagazine@outlook.com. We welcome reviews from all ages but, if you are under 18, please get a parent or guardian to email your review on your behalf. Please ensure your review is no longer than 250 words max. Reviews may be edited. Don’t forget to mention if it’s something we’ve recommended in a previous issue of PaperBound.

We would also like to publish letters from our readers. If you have any thoughts about PaperBound, anything you liked, or any questions about kidlit or Young Adult fiction, please send them to paperboundmagazine@outlook.com. We welcome letters from all ages but, if you are under 18, please get a parent or guardian to send them on your behalf. Please ensure your letter is no longer than 250 words max. Letters may be edited.

Please note:

PaperBound is a free magazine so we cannot offer any payment for publication. In submitting your work, you agree you are the sole author of the piece you are sending and give PaperBound permission to publish your work.
