Groundwood Books seeks novel-length fiction for children

Groundwood Books
110 Spadina Avenue, Suite 801
Toronto, ON M5V 2K4

Groundwood Books, established in 1978, is dedicated to the production of children's books for all ages, including fiction, picture books and non-fiction. We publish in Canada, the United States and Latin America.

We are always looking for new authors of novel-length fiction for children in all age areas. Our mandate is to publish high-quality, character-driven literary fiction. We do not generally publish stories with an obvious moral or message or genre fiction such as thrillers or mysteries. We do not publish high-interest/low-vocabulary fiction or stories with anthropomorphic animals or elves/fairies as their main characters.

Due to the enormous number of submissions we receive, Groundwood Books regrets we can no longer accept unsolicited manuscripts for picture books.

Full submission guidelines here.

Brian Henry will lead "Writing for Children and for Young Adults" workshops in in London, Ontario, on April 21, 2012, (see here) and in Oakville on June 2, 2012 (see here).
