publishing with us

 The world needs storytellers, they also need to pay them.

 It’s our mission to bring your brilliant stories to the world and support your talent.


Just like our sticky notes, there are two sides to every story…

  • 'Create your story' sticky note - Pay the creators - daCunha.global
    Create what you love
    fiction | creative nonfiction | poetry | photography | films | personal memoir | art | audio

    We want your best stories.
  • 'Submit' sticky note - Pay the storytellers - daCunha.global
    Send it to daCunha
    Details on what we're looking for, how to submit and how we work with you and your story can be found below.
  • 'Every story read by 2+ editors' sticky note - Pay the storytellers, daCunha.global
    we read your story
    We give your work the attention it deserves. Read by at least two of our diverse editorial team, voting ensues and discussions are had, because your story matters.
  • 'We pay according to our subscription levels' sticky note - Pay the storytellers, daCunha.global
    we pay for your story
    Subscribers and engaged audiences are key to this. You don't get paid on popularity, length, or your pedigree... your pay is based on our subscriber levels.
  • 'Hold on!' sticky note - Pay the storytellers, daCunha.global
    Wait a minute!
    Why shouldn't I wait for daCunha to get more subscribers? Then I'll get more for my story…
  • 'Here's the clever bit' sticky note - pay the storytellers - daCunha.global
    about that pay thing ...
    We don't get paid until you do and we keep paying you until your story attracts $5,000. Regardless of when you are published, each story that remains exclusive to daCunha will attract up to $5,000 if we reach the modest subscriber levels needed.
  • 'Yes $5000!' Pay the storytellers sticky note - daCunha.global
    $5,000… really?
    Really. After covering only our infrastructure fixed costs, we split all of the revenue with you 50/50. We don't get paid unless you're getting paid. As our subscriber numbers rise, so will your fee per story. Details are in our creator agreement
  • 'And there's more...' sticky note - Pay the storytellers daCunha
    the sky is the limit…
    If you’re happy to collaborate further, we may reimagine your story as an Audio Original, include it in one of our live Experiences, and/or use it to inspire bespoke products for daCunha super fans. Plus, there’s always the chance your story might be selected for inclusion in one of our daCunha books. All of these iterations provide their own compensation plans.
