Submission Guidelines - How to Submit to Firefly Press:


  • Firefly publishes great books for five to nineteen year olds.

  • We do not publish poetry or any fiction or non-fiction for adults.

  • We do not publish picture books for pre-school children.



We are sorry but we are currently closed to submissions. We are sorry we cannot accept scripts throughout the year, because we are only a small team, but we open our list in September of each year and will open it for September 2020. If you have any questions on submissions, please email Simone Greenwood on  



If you are a professional illustrator interested in illustrating our books or covers, please send us an email to with a link to your site or examples of your work. If you are not an illustrator but you feel your story should be illustrated, don’t feel you have to send us illustrations at this stage. Please send the script first and we can discuss illustrations if we are interested in pursuing the project. Please do not send us any original artwork. We can accept no responsibility for artwork sent to us.



If you have a children’s non-fiction project you want us to consider, please first send a covering letter or email explaining the project.
