Submission Guidelines

To submit a manuscript or proposal to Sky Pony, please send an email to skyponysubmissions at skyhorsepublishing dot com.

Attach all material as Word documents—or as a jpeg if art is involved. Include some relevant information about yourself, including your publishing history, any institutional associations you have, your occupation, a website link if relevant, and, for informational books, your qualifications as an expert in your subject area.

Please note: do not mail hard copies to our office unless requested. Unrequested hard copies will be returned unopened.

Many of you have asked what we are looking for, so here are some ideas. This list will evolve and change as we begin to sell our early lists, so check back occasionally for new information.

We will consider picture books, early readers, midgrade novels, novelties, and informational books for all ages. Although we are not searching for YA fiction in particular, we would consider projects that tied in with the subject areas in which we are publishing. We are mainly publishing single titles but are open to series ideas.

Our parent company publishes many excellent books in the fields of ecology, independent living, farm living, wilderness living, recycling, and other green topics, and this will be a theme in our children's book line. We are also searching for books that have strong educational themes and that help inform children of the world in which they live. We are also interested in books with special needs themes, such as autism, ADHD, food allergies, and so forth.
