Submissions

If you have a manuscript or portfolio and are interested in submitting your work, we accept submissions! We're actively looking for submissions from authors and illustrators that have been traditionally underrepresented in children’s literature. The subjects we are interested in are not just stories about identity, but stories that speak authentically to the rich experiences of these communities. Additionally, we are interested in manuscripts that address important issues, such as gender equity, climate change, mental health and voting rights, in a way that empowers children.

Additional guidelines for submissions:

  • Picture books for children 2+ (approximately 32 pages, 300-700 words with text and illustrations)
  • Fiction or nonfiction
  • Narrative or subject must be aligned with our mission

To make a submission, fill out this form.
