KWiL Publishing is currently accepting submissions.
We are seeking excellent children’s literature; books that will leave young readers begging, “Read it again!” We fully embrace the #weneeddiversebooks and #ownvoices campaigns, and are drawn to stories that authentically reflect the diversity of our world. We also prefer books with fully developed (through substance, not necessarily word count) plot lines, rather than books that are built around gimmicks or sentimentality. We are seeking books that have the increased potential to generate unique, engaging, and empowering interactions with readers.
We are also seeking STEM-themed manuscripts, or what we call, “scientific fiction.” We define scientific fiction as fictional books for kids that include well-researched and vetted scientific themes and information and memorable characters and compelling plots.
Finally, we are seeking illustrators for our picture book projects.
Please query firstname.lastname@example.org with your full picture book manuscript and, if relevant, a link to your art gallery or website. You will receive a response within two weeks.
