When I Met My Feelings


226 High Street
Dunedin, Otago NZ

EK Books is an award-winning, traditional children's publishing with a mission to publish 'Books with heart on issues that matter'. We believe that books provide an essential role in helping children overcome common issues and gain the tools they need to thrive in a complex world. To that end, we are inviting aspiring and experienced children's authors alike to participate in our When I Met My Feelings competition, which is now open.

Write a 350-word short story on the theme of When I Met My Feelings.
The story should follow the best practices of children's book writing.
We will be looking for stories with global appeal, a unique voice, and a sensitive interpretation of the topic. Please send text only—illustrations will be discussed with select authors who will be contacted in late June.
