We are passionate about what we do. Collaborations with different authors and points of view inspire us.


We pride ourselves on distributing our books worldwide.


Our mission is to bridge the gap in literacy. By joining us, you are joining a big force to help children and adults learn, grow, and achieve great things. We believe in a bright future for the generations to come, by spreading knowledge.

Kuvibooks Publishing is committed to publishing authors, illustrators, and people of diverse backgrounds. We enjoy collaborating with authors to further our work as a diverse, fair, and collaborative publishing house.

To encourage submissions from a wide range of potential authors, Kuvibooks Publishing has an open submissions policy.

We accept un-agented submissions of any projects suited to our list, from brilliant books to innovative gift products.

Before sending projects to us, please read the following guidelines carefully.

  • Adult Trade Submissions

  • Children’s Submissions (picture books, middle grade, or young adult)

  • Portfolio Submissions (freelance illustrator, photographer, or other visual artist guidelines)

  • Freelance Writer Submissions 

General Guidelines Adult Trade Submissions

We currently accept submissions by email only, which can be emailed to


Please attach your proposal to your email as a single Word file or PDF and keep the file under 5MB or less to ensure delivery. We will not open outside links and downloads because of security risks.

Please allow six months for the editors to review a proposal.

Given the volume of proposals we receive, we cannot ensure that we reach each submission unless we are interested in pursuing the project.

Because we currently only accept digital submissions, we are not responsible for any materials that are mailed to our physical location.

What to Include in Your Proposal

  • A one-page cover letter giving a brief description of the project and why you think Kuvibooks Publishing should publish it. If your proposal is a simultaneous submission, please show this in your cover letter.

  • Any available sample content to give us a clear picture of the project; may include an outline, introduction, sample illustrations or photographs, sample captions, sample recipes or cards, and/or sample chapters.

  • An analysis of the potential readership for the book. Who is the consumer? Include a list of similar titles that are already available on the market, including the publisher, date of publication, and a brief explanation of how your project differs.

  • An author/illustrator/photographer biography that includes any publishing credits or credentials in the field. 

General Guidelines Children’s Submissions (picture books, middle grade, or young adult)

What to Include in Your Proposal

  • Books for younger children may be submitted in their entirety without querying first. Projects for older children—such as chapter books or YA novels—should be submitted by query letter, synopsis, and three (3) sample chapters.

  • If you have multiple project proposals, please note that we will not accept more than three (3) submissions by the same author and/or illustrator during the same 6-month period. If you are submitting more than one at the same time, please include all of them in the same email.

  • For manuscripts that are part of a series, please submit the first installment only. Information about the rest of the series may be included in the cover letter.

We receive more than 1,000 children's book submissions every month. For this reason, we are not able to track the receipt of or answer queries about individual submissions.

Portfolio Submissions (freelance illustrator, photographer, or other visual artist guidelines)

We often hire freelance illustrators, artists, and photographers to develop commissioned artwork for books and products.

If you are interested in being considered for contract design, illustration, or photography work on our projects, please send your website address to

We prefer a portfolio with a link rather than an email attachment.

Freelance Writer Submissions 

We often hire freelance writers for book projects, particularly in Science and Engineering, educational material, or other specialized categories, and occasionally for non-book formats with written content, such as decks, guided journals, or other gift products.

If you are interested in being considered for contract writing work on our projects, please send your website portfolio address to
