Hallmark Submission Guidelines for movies, artwork, writing, ideas and more
I went the the Hallmark site to see if they take unsolicited submissions and the answers is no, HOWEVER they provide sites that can be helpful in regards to obtaining a literary agent or other agent in which to submit work to them as well as similar companies.
