KWiL Publishing is currently accepting submissions.

We are seeking excellent children’s literature; books that will leave young readers begging, “Read it again!”

We are particularly passionate about “scientific fiction” with STEM or Makers themes—stories that have well-researched and vetted scientific, technological, mathematical, engineering, or Makers-related content. At the heart of each are memorable characters and compelling plots. They are “read-it-again-worthy” in their own right, but they are also excellent supplements to a STEM or Makers curriculum.

We prefer projects with shelf-life over projects that feel gimmicky or feed a fad, although there are always exceptions.

We firmly embrace the #weneeddiversebooks campaign and prioritize publishing stories that are written and illustrated to reflect the diversity of our world.

We are seeking books that have the increased potential to generate unique, engaging, and empowering interactions with readers.

We are seeking illustrators for our picture book projects.

Please query with your full picture book manuscript and, if relevant, a link to your art gallery or website. We are a very small company. We will do our best to respond to all submissions, but if you do not hear from us within three months it means that we are not able to accept your manuscript at this time. Follow ups are always greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your interest in publishing with KWiL! Even if your work is not the right fit right, right now, we look forward to connecting
