Writers and Illustrators Guidelines

Submissions Policy At Boyds Mills Press, we welcome unsolicited submissions from published and unpublished writers and illustrators. The review process is time-consuming, and we require that anyone interested in submitting to us email submissions@bmkbooks.com. We review each submission in the order it was received and try to respond within three months.


Picture Books: We accept submissions from both writers and illustrators. If you are an author, you do not need to send a query first. Please submit the entire manuscript of your picture book.
