STORYMIX is a fiction production company with a focus on more inclusive representation in children's books.
We create high quality, high concept books for publishers and work with emerging and established writers and illustrators from BME backgrounds. Our aim is to also edit and publish stories on our website from authors on our database to give writers from underrepresented back grounds a platform to display their talent.
Our stories are guaranteed to thrill and entertain as well as reflect the world around us.

The Storymix online anthology has not launched yet - it is in the exploratory phase. But this is how I envision it running.
Storymix profiles a new image from a featured unagented illustrator at the beginning of each month and accept submissions up until the 15th of the month from writers from under represented backgrounds writing for children. We will publish up 5 writers over the course of the month. The main function of this online anthology is to give a platform to underrepresented writers - it is not to make money and we will not be charging for entry. We are looking for quality writing from the UK in the main instance but open to other territories. To be eligible for publication the work must be:
Strictly between 50-500 words, written within one hour.
New writing and written specifically in response to our image.
