Query letter guidelines are below.
We publish a variety of creative authors. Authors are invited to submit their writing to GenZ Publishing. Age does not matter; your message does.
We like innovation.

We accept the following submission types:

  • Fiction of all genres
  • Non-fiction
  • Short story collections
  • Long essays
  • Poetry
  • Comics
  • Other forms will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

*While we do publish most genres, we are especially interested in forward-thinking books. This includes books about the future, global change, inspiration, and the youth of today.

**We are also looking to publish more young adult fiction written by young adults. YA is one of the most popular literary genres, proving how interested in literature young people are. If they are reading it, they are writing it. But almost all nationally recognized YA is written by adults. What if we gave young people a chance to write for young people?

Each work will be individually evaluated. From there, authors that we do decide to publish will be actively involved in the publishing process as we groom their product to be released.

To keep our books high-quality, GenZ publishes under 10% of those who query us.
