About Scholastic
Manuscript Submission Guidelines

General Notes

Scholastic publishes recreational reading for children and young people. Its publishing focus is on books by Canadians.

Our recent trade catalogues are available online at www.scholastic.ca/booksellers/catalogues.php.


Unfortunately, due to the volume of material we currently have on hand, Scholastic is unable to accept unsolicited manuscripts at the present time.

Any changes to this policy will be posted on this site. Up-to-date information on our submissions policy is also available via our publishing status line at 905-887-7323, extension 4308.


Professional illustrators interested in working with Scholastic are invited to email sample art and links to an online portfolio to Andrea Casault at acasault@scholastic.ca.

Digital samples are preferred but hard copy samples can be sent to

Please do not send originals. If you would like your material returned please include a SASE. Scholastic Canada is not responsible for lost material.

Illustrators of interest will be contacted should a suitable project arise.

Thank you for thinking of us. We wish you the best of luck with your work.
