Call for Submissions to Tapas, New App Publisher


More Ezra and I have stories published at Tapas, and heard from them that they are looking for new stories. They recently put out a call for submissions.

Check out the note I recently got from them. And good luck!


Hey Everyone!
Tapas, a publishing platform home to serialized, snackable stories for mobile audiences, is looking for amazing original stories. We are a community who values well-crafted, engaging stories readers care about. We are searching for previously published or unpublished pieces with the potential for frequent, serialized updates once published on Tapas.
However, if the submitted works are original, exclusive series for Tapas:

  • Tapas will match creators earnings up to $10K.
  • Offer valid for material accepted through 10/31. That work is eligible for matching for one month after launch. [Updated]

Your submission should include:

  • Title
  • Genre
  • Minimum 3 Episodes (500–1000 words per episode)
  • Synopsis
  • Links to your website and/or social media

The genres our readers are most interested in are:

  • YA Romance
  • YA Fantasy
  • YA Mystery/Thriller
  • Slice-of-Life/relatable stories

In particular, our readers enjoy stories with a strong emphasis on fun, relatable characters alongside a faster-paced narrative.

    Do you make actual money through Tapas? I do enjoy writing, I do write a lot, but the characters cap on chapters here is bit of a source of disgruntlement for me. I do feel like, if I’m going to put time and effort into writing a stories fit for this format, I want that time to pay back… however ugly it sounds to say.

  • Beth Barany says:

    We do! Makes total sense that you want to make money. So do we. 🙂 I say go for it, if it’s a good fit for your style.

    Thank you for the answer! I’m… actually trying to figure if I can set an Android emulator to work however as I don’t own any mobile device …which can make things complicated to get to see what the story looks like once published. I’m a Tapastic user (as comic artist and reader) but I’ve never seen Tapas by myself. Is it possible for users to comment on stories, and for creators to reply to them?

  • Beth Barany says:

    Yes, users can comment on stories and creators can reply.
