Picture book submissions: The Emma Press

725d8cd1-61ce-447a-9de3-f2892a2af7d5

 

The boutique indie press will launch a call for picture book proposals in January

Proposals will be invited for picture books for children with potential for crossover appeal. All finished picture books will be 32 pages, including front-matter and end-matter. The Emma Press will welcome proposals from writers and writer-illustrators. Submissions will be particularly welcomed from writers under-represented in publishing.

'Picture books are a vital part of childhood,' said publisher Emma Wright. 'They are where we start to learn about ourselves and the world around us, and about the possibilities of literature, art and the imagination. There is still so much work to be done to make the world of picture books an inclusive, welcoming place where children can see themselves and also learn about others. I am looking forward to building an exciting, outward-looking list for children of all backgrounds.’

The window will open on 14 January and close on 20 April.
