New YA Publishing Imprint, Sourcebooks Fire!

Sourcebooks publishing is introducing a new imprint for young adult literature. It’s called Sourcebooks Fire! The website to go along with it, http://teenfire.ning.com, has a couple of interesting pieces of news that may appeal to teen readers.

One is a writing contest for teens that will accept submissions from February 1 to February 28, 2010. Sourcebooks Fire! is also searching for teens to give editorial input into the titles they choose to print. Here’s a description from the website of what review board members do:

“What you’ll get to do:

• Make editorial suggestions on novels in progress • Give feedback on covers in progress • Discuss books with other teens as smart and cool as you are—long before the books are in stores • Participate in the publishing industry • Meet authors, editors, and designers • Shape the next wave of teen fiction”
For complete details of how you can be eligible and apply to be a member of the teen review board, visit http://teenfire.ning.com/events/join-the-sourcebooks-fire-teen. You can also take part in discussion groups of  Sourcebooks Fire! books.

    As a Sourcebooks Fire author, I greatly appreciate it – and I think the teen involvement portion is just so cool. Go Sourcebooks!
