Everything with Words is an independent publisher of literary fiction

Everything with Words publishes literary fiction for children and adults. We began publishing fiction for children in 2017 and literary fiction for adults in 2020. We’ve received some wonderful critical response with our books being picked as books of the year by The Times, Sunday Times, Guardian, FT, Observer (2020) and The Telegraph (2019).

We only publish fiction. We publish high quality, innovative, engaging fiction for both children and adults. We are open to submission from both agents and authors. We do NOT publish PICTURE BOOKS, children’s books with a strong moral or didactic aim, adult fantasy or crime. We do not publish chapter books for children or children’s books that are less than forty thousand words. We try to respond to every query but we do receive a lot of submissions.
