East West Discovery Press (EWDP) is a publisher of multicultural and bilingual children's books. In general, we only consider manuscripts with illustrations, and with an emphasis on a compelling cultural or multicultural theme and other specialized topics relevant to our very specific publishing needs. Manuscripts must be written in English and Spanish or another language with English, with topics that would be appropriate to be translated into other languages.
We would advise that writers/illustrators take time to distinguish whether or not his/her work has a competitive edge. We accept partial or full manuscripts in PDF, the email body or Word files and, sample illustrations in PDF or JPEG files not to exceed 10MB. Please include a brief cover letter with your book synopsis and explain how your proposed title is different from other published work on the same topic. Also include a short resume detailing relevant professional experience and software knowledge such as Indesign.
To be considered for illustrations, a web page link or emailed sample portfolio is all that is needed. We may keep samples in our file for future potential project consideration.
Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Although we will review mailed manuscripts, we can only respond to emailed enquiries. Due to the overwhelming amount of submissions we receive each month, we will try our best to respond within 3-6 months.
Thank you for your interest. We wish you luck on your book endeavor.
