Deadline

31 July 2018

Opportunity Description

Imagnary House is a boutique publishing house for children’s books and young- adult literature in South Africa.

Their Mission

Imagnary House is focused on building a larger market for local African children’s and young-adult authors and illustrators, by both igniting the local readership and engaging with international readers, rights’ and literary agents.

A Call for Submissions

As of 1 July 2018, Imagnary House has opened their submissions and are looking to build up their publication list for the next 2 years. Submissions close on 31 July 2018 at midnight.
What are they looking for? Their priority this year is to find teen or young-adult fantasy, science-fiction, and alternative history novels. They are also looking for children’s chapter books and picture books that are sophisticated, fun and imaginative. However, they are not looking for educational, didactic, or moral-focused stories, definitely leaning towards manuscripts that are diverse and can travel across different cultures and countries.

Imagnary House will consider submissions in the following genres:

  • Children’s picture books (junior-grade)
  • Children’s chapter books (middle-grade)
  • Teen science-fiction, fantasy, or alternative-reality novels
  • Young-adult science-fiction, fantasy, or alternative-reality novels

How to Apply

Writers and illustrators can submit their work on Imagnary House’s submissions page.
