Please follow these Guidelines to submit your manuscript:
Once Storymoja formally accepts a manuscript for publishing, we will edit, title, proof, design, print, promote and distribute the work at our discretion and cost. Attendance at the workshop does not guarantee that we will accept the manuscript for publication. However, it makes it more likely.
As part of the publishing process, we will work closely with the author and expect full cooperation during the editing and promotion of the book. We want authors to succeed.
After publication, Storymoja expects the author to work closely with the marketing and sales team, and be active in promoting the books at schools, events and in the broadcast and social media.
1. Authors must sign contracts confirming that their manuscripts are original and unpublished. We will run a plagiarism check on all manuscripts.
2. No Boundaries Ltd. (Storymoja’s holding company) will offer the author 15% royalty fee on net receipts, for all rights worldwide and in all formats, accounted for twice a year and payable on an annual basis. If the author prefers to get a flat fee payment, Storymoja will pay Ksh 1/ per word calculated as per the final word count that gets printed.
