About 1000Jars

We are a content development company, an idea lab, dedicated to bringing great stories to life for print and screen. Based in Brooklyn, New York, we develop original ideas across a variety of genres for kids of all ages, backgrounds, and interests.



We’re just getting started, and won’t be sharing any information on our current projects until they’re ready to be out in the world. We do not accept unsolicited submissions.


Behind the Name

The name 1000 Jars is derived from a play on Raquel’s last name, Jaramillo. In Spanish, Jarra means “jar,”, and mil is the number 1000. Raquel and Russell agreed that since their children have Russell’s last name, their company could have Raquel’s last name. ;)
