Submissions – Children’s / YA / Illustrators

All children’s submissions should be made by email. Send the required documents as Word attachments to: childrenssubmissions@davidhigham.co.uk

Please do not send documents via links such as SkyDrive: we will not open those, nor attachments which are presented as .zip files. We will open only word-processing attachments such as Word docs (.doc or .docx), or PDFs.

Please put your name and the title of your work in the subject line of the email.

What to send us: a covering letter in the body of the email, and a synopsis of the proposed book with the first two or three chapters and a CV, as Word attachments. If you are submitting a picture book you may send us the complete typescript.

If you are submitting illustrated material in dummy form – such as a novelty book – and want to send this as a hard copy by post, please email us first. If we want to see more of your work, we will request it.
