CAKE Literary is committed to developing original voices and diverse, high quality content for the middle grade, young adult and women’s fiction categories.

If you’re a writer and you think you might be a good fit for CAKE, you can submit your materials to us via Submittable. In your submission, please include your resume, contact information, a biography and a 10-page writing sample representative of your style.


You will receive an automated message confirming the receipt of your materials. Once we’ve received them, your submission package will be reviewed by the CAKE crew within six to eight weeks.

If we feel that your voice is a good match for one our upcoming projects, we’ll contact you for a brief interview.

At that point, if we think you’re a strong candidate for the project, we'll ask you to audition for the project by submitting sample pages. More details about this process can be found on our FAQ page.

If you’re chosen to write the particular project you audition for, you’ll be joining CAKE on a very exciting publishing adventure!
