At Lantana, we do things a little differently. Check out our submissions process below.
What do we publish?
If you look on our books page, you'll see that we've arranged our books into eight 'collections'. These collections showcase what we really care about. If you have a story that fits into one of these collections, we'd love to hear from you.
We're looking for short picture book texts for 4-6 year olds (usually no more than 500 words) or slightly longer non-fiction texts for 7-11 year olds.
Who do we want to hear from?
We're committed to opening up a space for diverse voices so we particularly want to hear from authors and illustrators of BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) heritage.
What should I submit?
For authors: Please send us your full manuscript.
For illustrators: Please send us your portfolio & a link to your website.
For author-illustrators: Please send us your complete book dummy.
