Could you be the next writer to join #ClanCranachan?

We are currently compiling our list for 2018 and are accepting submissions now.

For the time being, our focus is only on children’s historical fiction* (9-12 age range for our Yesteryear series).

We only publish books that excite and inspire us – which means that we’re looking for quirky, bold and vibrant writing!

We’ll work with you and support you throughout the journey to publication and beyond. You will be involved in all decisions concerning your book; your opinion will always count. We promise to care about your book as much as you do.

Could you be the cream in our cranachan?

Submission Guidelines

To tickle our taste buds, please email  with the following:

  • a covering letter with details of your writing CV, as well as your social media links
  • an MS Word document attachment that contains a synopsis and the opening chapter(s) of up to 5000 words of your completed, clean manuscript

If we want to read more we will get in touch. We aim to respond to initial submissions within 6 weeks – but often sooner. (As writers ourselves we know what the waiting is like!)

So, what’s the dream? Let us know – we’d love to make it happen. We look forward to reading a flavour of your writing.


*We are not accepting submissions for picture books, YA or adult fiction at the moment.

*Please note we do not publish poetry, short story collections, science fiction, fantasy or erotica.
