submissions

Capstone is keenly interested in meeting authors and illustrators.  In fact, they play an integral role, connecting with our young readers and often deepening the reading experience by interacting with them online.  Most of our titles are conceptually developed in-house and written and illustrated by freelance writers and artists.  However, we are interested in receiving writers’ manuscripts and reviewing artists' portfolios.
