Raven Tree Press
Story & Illustration Submission Guidelines
Raven Tree Press publishes high quality children’s picture books. We look for family oriented storylines with universal appeal for preschool and elementary aged children. We do not publish reference books, religious topics, non–fiction, or activity books.
•  We are currently accepting complete picture book stories with illustrations for eBook format only. They should appeal to 4–8 year olds and have approximately 750 words. (We edit our books down to 750 words maximum.)
•  Most of all, they should feel like they’d fit our line. Please spend some time looking through our website and reading about our books to determine whether your story might be a fit. Remember, we only publish picture books. We are NOT interested in rhyming pieces, alphabet books, word play books or books well over 750 words.
•  If your manuscript meets the criteria above, send a sample to submissions@raventreepress.com.
•  Do not send any queries or manuscripts by snail mail. We are going paperless.
•  Due to the large number of queries we receive, we are no longer able to send individual replies for queries we do not wish to pursue.
•  We will follow up with another email ONLY if we are interested in creating an eBook.
•  If you do not receive another email within a month or so, please realize that your story/artwork was not considered a fit for our line. But do not despair: we only publish a few books per year, so we need to be extremely selective.
