Everything with Words is an independent publisher of books for children, YA and adults.

Everything with Words publishes literary fiction for children and adults. We began publishing children’s books in 2017 and our books have received much praise from reviewers, and have been picked as books of the year ( The Times and The Telegraph) and been nominated for the Carnegie. Our first novels for adults are coming out this year.

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 We do not publish picture books, children’s books with a strong moral or didactic aim, adult fantasy or crime.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 welcome submissions for our anthology of short stories to be published in March 2021 with an introduction by Amanda Craig. The theme is solitude but there must be no mention of COVID-19. Stories should be between two and six thousand words.
