Algonquin Books, long known for their focus on high-quality fiction and nonfiction, is launching a juvenile imprint this fall.
They will start with five titles, a substantial amount considering that they limit their adult titles to a total of 20 every year.
Their goal is to eventually publish 15 juvenile titles in middle-grade and YA markets every year.
Whenever a publisher launches a new imprint, pay attention! Your chances of being considered are much higher as they work to build their list for years to come.
