SCBWI SG _____ How and where you can submit your children’s book manuscript to publishers in Singapore

NOTE: I featured the Singapore chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators here. This post is a follow up to introduce the five main publishers of children’s story books in Singapore, listed below in alphabetical order. Based on information from them, here’s the total number of new children’s books they publish in one year: 16 Young Adult novels, 32 middle grade or chapter books, 47 picture or board books. All information and photos below provided by the respective publishers. Thanks to all of them for taking the time to share this information. And if you have a book idea waiting to be published, you now know who to contact about this. Happy writing and illustrating!
