Good news for Irish writers

A new Irish children's and young adult publishing list, Little Island, is to be launched later this month. Little Island will be an imprint of New Island books.

Six titles will be published initially, with further titles planned for later in the year. The company plans to publish novels by new and established Irish writers and to give Irish readers access to a range of children's titles in translation.

The imprint will be headed up by children's author and editor, Siobhán Parkinson. Little Island will be officially launched on 18th March.

New Island is happy to accept unsolicited manuscripts for consideration.  They publish a wide range of titles from fiction and poetry to history, humour, travel and more. Visit their web site for details of their lists and how to submit your work.
