Coralstone Press Submission Guidelines

Coralstone Press is leading a resurgence of long-form, narrative storytelling in children’s picture books.  We believe that children have the capacity to digest challenging themes and complex stories that contain high stakes and meaningful conflicts. At Coralstone Press, story is paramount. Great story is not defined by page nor word count. We therefore encourage authors to submit stories that are not confined to the current industry standard, 32-page format. We will consider books already illustrated, or books for which an illustrator has not yet been chosen.

Coralstone Press uses the industry-standard advance royalty structure for contract agreements with its authors. We are distributed by IPG’s Small Press United. 

Coralstone accepts only digital copies of book titles in PDF format. Your submission must also include a signed release form attached to the same email.  Email submissions without a signed release form will not be read. Please email both the book and signed release to We look forward to hearing from you!
