Authors who write children’s stories are welcome to submit a book-length manuscript to Nosy Crow (est. 2011), an award-winning U.K.-based independent press that publishes children’s books and interactive mobile apps.
The company publishes illustrated, story-driven books for kids aged 0-12, and multimedia story apps for kids aged 2-7, with the mission of encouraging young readers to read for fun and entertainment. All stories are “parent-friendly”–the publisher discourages the use of sex, profanity, violence, etc.
Authors are invited to submit a full manuscript if it’s a novelty or picture book; otherwise, email a synopsis with Chapter One for longer manuscripts.
Submission guidelines are available at Nosy Crow’s website.
In 2016 Nosy Crow received the following awards for publishing exceptional children’s books:
- The Independent Publishers Guild Independent Publisher of the Year Award
- The Independent Publishers Guild Children’s Publisher of the Year Award
