At Enjoy Learning Something, we are interested in reading quality picture books and nonfiction manuscripts for children, as well as chapter books for ages 7–10. We do not accept young adult fiction or fantasy novels for any age. To ensure that your manuscript is appropriate for our publishing list, please consider our mission, “To help kids enjoy learning, especially with hands-on activities.” When submitting your manuscript, please follow the guidelines listed below.
The manuscript must be typewritten and double-spaced, with your name and address on both the manuscript and cover letter. For picture book submissions, please send a copy of the entire manuscript. For chapter book submissions, we require a synopsis and approximately three sample chapters. Please do not send the entire manuscript unless requested to do so.
We do not consider manuscripts submitted on disk, by fax or by e-mail.
Please do not send us the only copy of the work.
We will only respond to those that are of interest for possible publication. Therefore, a self-addressed, stamped envelope is unnecessary — all materials will be recycled. If you have not heard from us within six months of submitting your manuscript, you can assume that it is not right for Enjoy Learning Something.
Please do not send original artwork with your manuscript. It is not necessary for art to be created in advance of a manuscript being accepted for publication. Should a manuscript require illustrations, Enjoy Learning Something will make arrangements for the artist. However, if you are a professional artist, please include photocopied samples of your work along with a brief resumé outlining your experience.
You are welcome to send your proposal simultaneously to other publishers rather than submitting it exclusively to Enjoy Learning Something.
WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ABOUT THE STATUS OF YOUR MANUSCRIPT BY PHONE, MAIL OR E-MAIL.
Address the envelope to:
