Pajama Press seeks picture books,middle grade and YA novels and children's nonfiction

Pajama Press
112 Berkeley St. 
Toronto, ON M5A 2W7

Pajama Press was established in early 2011. A small literary press with big ideas, Pajama aims to publish titles of exceptional quality for children and teens of all ages. Pajama publishes picture books – both for the very young and for school-aged readers – and novels for middle grade readers and for young adults aged 12+. Pajama’s nonfiction titles typically contain a strong narrative element.

Pajama Press does not accept unsolicited manuscripts. To request permission to submit a manuscript, email a query to:
Your query should include an overview of your book, information about your writing background, and an excerpt. Send the equivalent of one or two pages of your finished book—this means that novel excerpts will be considerably longer than those for picture books. The excerpt will give a taste of your writing style.

Maria Vicente of P.S. Literary Agency
Brian Henry will lead a "Writing for Children & for Young Adults" workshop on May 31 in Burlington (see here).

Brian will lead “How to Get Published" workshops in Guelph on April 12 with literary agent Sam Hiyate (see here), in London on April 19 with literary agent Olga Filina (see here), in Stouffville on May 24 with literary agent Carly Watters (see here) and in Ottawa on June 22 with literary agent Maria Vicente (see here).

But the best way to get your manuscript ready for publication is with a weekly course. Note this new course: “Intermediate Creative Writing" on Wednesday evenings in Burlington (see here) and check out the details of all course starting in March and April here.
