Call for Submissions

Call for Submissions: Wisdom Tales Press (Seeking Manuscripts About Cultures and Peoples from Around the World)

Via Asia Writes:

We are looking for stories that focus on themes from around the world. Wisdom Tales publishes both children’s and teen titles and was created for the purpose of sharing the wisdom, beauty, and values of traditional cultures and peoples from around the world with young readers and their families. The content, illustrations, and production quality of these books is intended to assure them a lasting value for children, parents, teachers, and librarians.

Wisdom Tales invites the submission of children’s and teen manuscripts that will represent our above stated goals and contribute to our aim of producing exceptional books that will spark the imagination, encourage the development of good character, and help facilitate cross-cultural understanding and awareness. Our books reflect our commitment to help others appreciate the beauty and sacred ways of diverse cultures and traditions.

If you are interested in submitting your work, and feel that your proposed manuscript matches our publishing philosophy, please follow the submission procedure outlined below and complete the online Manuscript Submission Form.


All Submissions of manuscripts for children’s and teen books must be made on this webpage.

Please complete our online Manuscript Submission Form on this webpage and follow the
instructions carefully. If we are interested in your manuscript, we will contact you and ask for additional information. For authors of Teen books, please only submit one sample chapter of less than 4,000 words. If we are interested, we may ask you to mail us a hard copy of your manuscript.

We do not accept any phone inquiries regarding submissions.

We do not accept any submissions of fiction manuscripts for Teens; non-fiction only.

The above referenced online Manuscript Submission Form is for manuscripts only. For
illustrations and artwork, we only accept submissions by email and we will only open PDFs.

Please read our Wisdom Tales Submission Guidelines for Artists for specific details and instructions about how to email your artwork. Please do not submit any artwork using the online Manuscript Submission Form.

If you are an author who is also an illustrator and you would like to submit a proposed book with both your story AND your illustrations, please read our Wisdom Tales Submission Guidelines for Artists. You will need to email your artwork in PDFs as explained in the Submissions Guidelines.

Also submit your text using our online Manuscript Submission Form which is referenced above.


Although we review every submission we receive through our online Submission Process, unfortunately, we are not always able to respond to you unless we decide to consider your manuscript for publication.

Due to the very large number of submissions we receive, we do not have the staff or resources to
respond to queries that we elect not to publish. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We will acknowledge receipt of manuscripts that were submitted online using our Manuscript Submission Form by an automatically generated email. (We cannot respond about previously submitted manuscripts, as manuscripts are reviewed by our editorial department who are located in various places.) Please know that we review carefully each submitted manuscript and if we are interested in pursuing the project, you will hear from us within approximately four months.
