Scholastic publishes nearly 100 book titles each year. If you are a professional teacher who has written a teaching strategy, activity resource, grade 4 to 8, or a scholastic reference book, then you can submit your ideas to Scholastic to be published. Scholastic accepts unsolicited manuscripts from professionals. Follow these steps to submit your idea. Scholastic doesn't review manuscripts until you've gone through this process.
Things You'll Need
- Word processing software
In your word processing software, type a brief description of the manuscript you want to submit. Clarify the subject matter, and target age range for your book.
Add the "Table of Contents" for your book to the document . Write a brief description under each chapter heading so the editor at Scholastic can get a snapshot of how your book has been developed.
If your book includes projects and activities for students, include a sample in your document. If not, add a sample chapter instead. This allows the editor to get an idea of your writing style and the way you present your topic.
Attach information about yourself. Include a resume, a list of any past published works you've done, and samples of your writing.
Proofread, print, and mail your completed document to:
