The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Highlights High Five

Note: This market claims copyright for stories that they accept, which is very unusual, and means that you may never do anything with your story again.

High Five stories and poems should support the social and emotional development of children ages 2-6. We are looking for stories and poems that can be read aloud to our youngest readers, and can also be read alone by our older, beginning readers. Rhyme, repetition and patterned texts are particularly welcome.

Stories should be 170 words or less. The topics should be age-appropriate, with settings, characters, and plots that will be familiar to young children. Remember that illustrations can provide many descriptive details, giving you room in the text for dialogue and at least four or more scenes.
