Children’s Book Submissions
Thank you for your interest in the art of Kadir Nelson. This message has been posted regarding inquiries about the children’s book illustration services of Kadir Nelson. Industry practices dictate that all unsolicited children’s book materials be submitted to a publisher via a literary agent or an attorney. This practice serves as protection for all parties and defrays the possibility of copyright infringement by any party.
Additionally, Kadir Nelson does not accept any unsolicited materials from individuals including manuscripts, mach-ups, illustration samples or otherwise, for submission to publishers. The services of an illustrator are not contracted until after the manuscript has been acquired by a publisher. Once the manuscript has been acquired and edited, an illustrator is identified by the publisher. At this time the author will have the opportunity to suggest his or her choice of illustrator for the manuscript.
Mr. Nelson's book services are handled by Steven Malk of Writers House, 858.678.8767, [email protected].
For all other inquiries regarding children’s book publishing, please contact the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
