New South African Children’s Literature Publisher Calling for Submissions

Imagnary House, a new publishing house for children’s literature, is encouraging submissions from all African writers:

Press release from Imagnary House:

We’re a new boutique publishing house for children’s literature in Cape Town, South Africa.

Our Mission

We’re focused on building a larger market for African children’s authors and illustrators by both igniting the local readership and engaging with international readers, rights’ and literary agents.

We’ve just opened our submissions after launching our debut publication (‘Seven’ by B. D. Harris), and now we’re looking to build up our publication list for the next 2 years.

What are we looking for? We love stories that are fun and imaginative, but also address current societal issues for children. We want simple stories that mean something and can feed positively into our children’s futures.

Imagnary House will consider submissions in the following genres:

  • Children’s long form fiction (think Roald Dahl and CS Lewis narratives)
  • Picture books
  • Rhyming verse books (think Dr Seuss)
  • We specifically aren’t looking at educational texts

Writers and illustrators can submit their work on our submissions page here: https://imagnaryhouse.com/pages/submissions.
