Flashlight Press will accept queries for picture book stories that have universal themes and deal with family or social situations. They should appeal to 4-8 year olds and have approximately 1,000 words. Most of all, they should fit in their line. Spend some time looking through the catalog to determine whether your story might be a fit. Remember, they only publish picture books. They are not interested in concept books, nonfiction, early readers, chapter books, or YA novels – and no holiday books.
If your manuscript meets the criteria above, send a query email (no attachments) describing your story (plot, word count, target audience, what makes this story unique) to Shari Dash Greenspan: submissions@FlashlightPress.com
Please do not send the full manuscript.
