Yellow Pixie is a new digital publishing company focused on interactive children's books for iPad.
We are going to launch our first books and website in the coming months.

We are currently looking for writers to rewrite a classic tale. The task is to take an original story, update it and write it to fit a new media (somewhere between a picture book and a script).

If interested, please send:
- Some background information
- A sample work
- Published works if exist

Contact: lior@yellowpixie.com

You say write it to fit a new media, could you clarify what you're looking for?

Do the authors also have to be artists or graphic artists?

No need to be graphic artists or illustrators. Maybe instead of media I should say new format. This requires the writer to take the story that would read as normal prose and transform it to an interactive picture book. Usually shorter story, very concise paragraphs, develop the interaction ideas for each page and so on.

sounds similar to the format a comic script would take.

What age group would you be targeting?

If you tell us what age group you are shooting for and the expected format type for a sample work, it would help your applicants. It would also assist you as you would get what you want from at least some of the authors.

Age group should be 3-6.

The format we are working with is similar in a way to a picture book. Between 12 and 20 pages long, 1 paragraph per page.
