Imagnary House is a boutique publishing house for children’s books and young adult
literature in South Africa.
Their Mission: Imagnary House is focused on building a larger market for local authors and illustrators of African children’s
books. The intention is also to ignite the love of reading. Imagnary House is committed to engaging with both local and international readers, and literary agents.
A Call for Submissions: As of 1 July 2018, Imagnary House opened their Call for Submissions to build their publication list for the next 2 years. Submissions close on 31 July 2018 at midnight.
What are they looking for? Their priority this year is to find teen or young-adult fantasy, science-fiction, and alternative history novels. They are also looking for children’s chapter books and picture books that are sophisticated, fun and imaginative. However, they are not looking for educational, didactic, or moral-focused stories, definitely leaning towards manuscripts that are diverse and can travel across different cultures and countries.
Imagnary House will consider submissions in the following genres:
- Children’s picture books (junior-grade)
- Children’s chapter books (middle-grade)
- Teen science-fiction, fantasy, or alternative-reality novels
- Young-adult science-fiction, fantasy, or alternative-reality novels
Writers and illustrators can submit their work on Imagnary House’s submissions page. Website: https://imagnaryhouse.com/
