Manuscript Submissions

Publishing with Loose Parts Press

At Loose Parts Press our focus is on children’s books that are empowering and affirming – stories that inspire kids to change the world and highlight the beauty and joy in it.

We publish books for babies up to upper primary school students – fiction and non-fiction, but will consider YA submissions as well. We only publish authors residing in Australia. The subjects we’re most passionate about include:

  • Books about nature, the environment, native animals and plants
  • Books that inspire creativity and play
  • Social justice and climate justice topics
  • Authors/illustrators from culturally diverse backgrounds, particularly Aboriginal Australians
  • Unique or under-represented voices

How to submit a manuscript:

If you are interested in publishing with Loose Parts Press please email with your manuscript and a cover letter addressing the following questions:

  • What is the intended audience/age range for your book?
  • Please give us the one paragraph elevator pitch.
  • What makes your book unique? Why does this story need to be told?

For illustrators:

Please email with links to your portfolio/website/Facebook page/Instagram account. Tell me a little bit about yourself and any project ideas you might have.
