SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

BOOKS FOR CHILDREN

The Five Mile Press is currently not accepting unsolicited manuscript submissions.

Illustrators
The Five Mile Press is currently accepting submissions from illustrators. Feel free to send us character roughs or a storyboard as we may be able to match your work with a manuscript or with an author. Folio samples are also welcomed.

SENDING YOUR SUBMISSION

Submissions can be emailed to: publishing@fivemile.com.au

What happens then?
If your initial submission looks very promising, we will be in touch to follow up and may request more samples.
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of submissions, we are unable to give specific feedback. We are also unable to respond to queries by telephone, so please don’t call to check on the progress of your submission.
We recommend making multiple submissions to publishers rather than waiting for our response. We endeavour to respond within a month of receipt of submissions but this is dependent on the number awaiting review at any given time.
Good luck!
