Here at RAD Writing, we pride ourselves on publishing good, clean books—and we hold no specifications based upon genre. We accept submissions in fiction, nonfiction, and even poetry. Simply fill out the submissions form (below), email us a copy of your work, and we’ll contact you as soon as our editors begin their review. We also accept proposals for longer works that have not yet been completed.  

Our specialty is working with young authors, but we don’t mean your age. We want to work with authors who haven’t been published before, those who may have had difficulties getting their work in the spotlight, to give you the experience of being traditionally published.  

Oh yeah, and we want to work with you, not turn your work into something it wasn't, so you'll keep 49% creative control on everything to do with your work, from content to cover design. Booyah. 

If you have any questions about the submission or publication process, or would like a free consultation with an editor, check out our FAQs or Contact Us.
