POW! publishes books for children that are visually striking, imaginative, funny, modern, and have an offbeat or edgy sensibility. If you have a book project that meets these criteria, and you would like POW! to consider your book for publication, please send us a submission including a brief introduction of yourself and your work, and a complete manuscript, with illustrations if you have illustrated the work yourself. Attach the submission to the email, or include in the body of the email, no links please.
We are actively seeking manuscripts that:
- Represent diverse characters, cultures, identities, and points of view.
- Deal with contemporary topics, or are somehow pertinent to our times.
- Display outside-the-box thinking and storytelling.
- Lend themselves to strong and unique visual interpretation.
- Non-narrative, concept-driven books are also welcome.
- Author/Illustrators preferred
The best way to send it to us is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also mail submissions to us at:
32 Adams St.
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Please note that we cannot return your materials so do not send original art.
Please DO NOT CALL to follow up. We receive a lot of submissions, and we do look at every one, though it can take a little while. Rest assured, if your book is right for us, we’ll definitely get in touch with you.
Thanks for thinking of us!
