Flashlight Press accepts picture book queries

Posted on April 30, 2012


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.
