List of publishing houses that accept children's book submission by email
Children's publishers most commonly accept picture books by e-mail. (bilderbuchwetter image by Anja Greiner Adam from Fotolia.com)

E-mail submissions remain a rarity in the publishing world as publishers cling to the printed word despite an increase in e-book sales. No major publishers accept e-mail submissions, though independent presses are increasingly open to them as they go paperless for commercial or environmental reasons. Picture books, which require only a few pages of printed text, are more likely to be accepted via e-mail than lengthy novels.
