My Manuscript Wish List®

Hello brilliant nonfiction writers! I am looking to supply Odd Dot’s list with substantive, highly-visual, nonfiction books for all ages. I’m always on the lookout for writers who have fresh takes on activity, novelty, workbook, or educational texts that are age-appropriate and fun! I’m currently interested in manuscripts and book formats in the following categories:

  • 0-3 year olds: social-emotional learning, early science, high-contrast
  • Middle grade: activity, workbook, project-based learning, math, science, language
  • All ages: craft, DIY, activity

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should be emailed to kate.avino@odddot.com

Many of the authors and illustrators that work with Odd Dot are for books that are developed in-house, but we do accept submissions for out-of-house creators. Please review some of our currently published books on odddot.com, then submit your manuscript if you see it’s a match!
