One Writer’s Journey

Page Street Publishing: New editor

Are you familiar with Page Street Publishing?  If not, you probably should be.  They are listed as a “fast-growing, independent publisher of 2016” by Publisher’s Weekly.  With a 70 title backlist, Page Street is a general lifestyle publisher with books in health, parenting, crafts, popular science and more.  Many of the books are cookbooks but the children’s list thus far has focused on activity books.  See the article here.

On their website, the company has this to say ab out their growing children’s list. “We are also excited to announce a significant new investment in a children’s program, headed by a 20-year children’s book publishing veteran. This program will include picture books as well as young adult titles for ages 12 and up. Our goal is to discover talented writers and illustrators who create believable and diverse characters, tell riveting stories that resonate with children and young readers, as well as engage with the vibrant children’s and YA book communities.”

I’d love to say that I’ve had great success ferreting out the names of editors at Page Street, but I have found a few including:

Publisher:  Will Kiester

Associate YA Editor: Ashley Hearn, something she commented about on Twitter (see here).

YA Editor: Alyssa Raymond, see LinkedIn.

Check the publisher’s guidelines for information on how to submit nonfiction or YA.  This is a rapidly growing publisher and will be a great opportunity for the right writer!
