We are currently publishing 1-2 illustrated books per month, which means we need a lot of illustrators to bring these magical stories to life… on the pages of books!

So if you’re looking for purpose, projects, future passive income,  or sharing your art with the world in one of our stories then please read the rest of this page carefully.

Fair Trade Publishing

As the first ever Fair-trade Publishing company, we pay our artists 50% of the revenue we generate from book  and subscription sales. In January 2023, we are releasing the Majik Kids App – which will pay our authors, illustrators, musicians, meditation guides, producers and voice actors to bring their Majik to the kids!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will I be paid on the App?

The app will cost approx. $11/month for a family to join. It will include stories, music & meditations (plus a parent/educator portal). 50% of subscription revenue will be put into an artist pool. Your story will count as a ‘piece of content’ and you will earn a ‘content engagement’ point every time somebody listens to more than 50% of your track. The same points are rewarded for meditations & music. At the end of each month, ‘content points’ will be divided up amongst all artists (authors, illustrators, musicians, voice actors, meditation guides & producers) involved in all the content pieces (stories, music, meditations) and you will be paid your fair portion of the pie. Mmmmm pie!!!!

How do I illustrate a book?

When we have a book ready to go into illustrating, we put out an email "call to illustrators" to audition to illustrate the book. You will do a book cover mock-up and some character sketches. You submit those, our team votes and we choose the illustrator who matches the vision we have for the story. NOTE: At this time ALL illustrators must use ProCreate.

Who is marketing Majik Kids?

We are building a marketing & sales team, rolling out a mombassador program and ultimately, are committed to doing what it takes to make Majik Kids a household name. Obviously, you spreading the word about this cool platform you’re a part of will help too. We’re all in this together!

Can I illustrate more than one story?

Absolutely! The more magical stories you illustrate, the merrier.
