We always like to read picture book texts with energy and originality and a strong story with a beginning and a middle and an end. We accept submissions within New Zealand if you are previously published, if your work is recommended to us by an agent, manuscript assessor or book industry contact, or if you have relevant professional writing or illustration experience. However you will not hear a response if you do not fit this criteria.
