Submission and Cover

At this stage you have been working on your short stories for a number of weeks.

The time has arrived to submit your short story for inclusion in your book.

You are about to become a REAL PUBLISHED AUTHOR!

So what is the next step?
Emailing your work to your teacher.

When you are satisfied that your work is complete and it has been edited and proofed, you must send it, fully typed, to your teacher.

Before you do, however, you need to check that the following are included at the top of your page; Story title, Author Name and Class…

Once they are, you can send it across to your teacher who will compile a word file of the work from everyone in your class.

When this word file is complete he/she will then send it to the main contact (the person who is responsible for dealing with your publisher, Emu Ink!) in the school, and he/she will compile a full school's word file online.

This full book file will then be emailed, along with your artwork for the front cover, to the Emu Ink submissions department...

Your Cover

On every cover, there is room for 31 images and the school logo.

So pupils need to submit anything from 1 to 31 images that

For example, if your story is about murder the image could be of a gun. If it’s about a broken relationship it could be of a broken heart…

When the images are complete, the main contact will email them in a folder to Emu Ink and we will take it from there.

How you choose your 31 artists is up to you. One class from the school could use their art class to do it or, if 10 classes take part for example, approximately three students from each class could be chosen to put their drawings forward…

And that’s it. Once this is done, so are you!

The next time you see your work will be in print, when you have your very own book containing your published story in your hands.

You have done an amazing thing. You are on the verge of becoming a REAL PUBLISHED AUTHOR and it is a huge achievement.

Now all that is left for us to say is, thank you for taking part in the Emu Ink Schools' Publishing Programme and well done. We are proud to be your publisher and we hope that you enjoy your book!
