Albert Whitman

Albert Whitman & Company currently has an open submissions policy. We will read and review un-agented manuscripts and proposals for picture books, middle-grade fiction, and young adult novels. Please read the following instructions carefully. We will not review any submissions that do not follow these guidelines.
Due to the great number of submissions we receive, we cannot respond to individual submissions unless we have further interest. You may assume that after six months we are not interested in publishing your work.
You may send your work to other publishers at the same time. We do not require exclusive submissions.


  • Include a cover letter in the body of your email (please see individual category guidelines for cover letter tips)
  • Include contact information with phone number
  • Attach manuscripts as WORD documents (preferred) or PDFs. File sizes cannot be larger than 4MB.
  • Subject line must be formatted according to individual category guidelines. Emails that do not use the subject line formatting may not be read.
