Submission Guideliness

Tiny Seed Publishing, founded in Australia, publishes children’s books that are imaginative and intriguing. We recommend that the guidelines below be taken into consideration prior to the submission of manuscripts.

What We Are Looking For

We consider submissions from anyone, provided they are suitable for our target audience, children aged 3 to 9.

We place an emphasis on discovering new talent and supporting unpublished authors, and we are open to offering publishing opportunities to emerging children’s book writers.

We also accept submissions from established authors and are happy to work together to publish further works.

We welcome illustrators to submit samples of their work via email as we are interested in working with a range of illustrators.

Illustrators are also encouraged to write their own picture book stories and submit them to us.

Initial Assessment

We require the following information to be attached to the email submission:

  • One sentence summarising the book.
  • A synopsis not longer than 300 words.
  • For authors, please submit a full manuscript. We prefer not to receive artwork in submissions from authors.
  • For author-illustrators, please submit a full manuscript and artwork.

Don’t forget to include the following information:

  • Title of your manuscript.
  • Age level of readers.
  • Any relevant biographical information, such as previously published work or special expertise.
