Annick Press launches new series

Annick Press
15 Patricia Avenue
Toronto, ON M2M 1H9
Annick Press has recruited Melanie Little as editor-at-large for a teen fiction series, Single Voice. Already launched in France by Actes Sud, three English translations will be published in spring 2010, and Annick will acquire original titles to extend the series. “Delivered through the authentic voice of a teen narrator, these stories resonate with emotional honesty.”

Little will also acquire and edit essays for a forthcoming young adult anthology.
Submission guidelines: Annick Press is committed to publishing Canadian authors. Sorry, but we cannot accept unsolicited manuscripts from outside Canada .

Picture books: We are not accepting picture book manuscripts at the present time.

Teen Fiction: Annick Press invites writers to submit proposals for teen novels which possess a high degree of originality and capture strong and distinctive contemporary voices.... Please mail a synopsis, together with a sample chapter.
Middle Reader Fiction: Annick Press seeks middle reader fiction (ages 8 – 11) which captures the imagination of readers and readily engages their interest. The story must be memorable, well-written and notable for its originality. Humor, even if used occasionally, is an asset. Please mail a synopsis, together with a sample chapter.
Middle reader and Teen Non-Fiction: The degree of originality in an idea or in the approach to a subject is key to our non-fiction program.
