We welcome submissions from writers and illustrators. Acceptance is based on originality of ideas, usefulness to educators and others working in multicultural settings, audience need, market demand and a fit with the directions and goals of Lectura Books. We suggest all potential writers and illustrators view our books online.

- An outline of the development of the book.
- A sampling of the activities and projects if applicable or sample chapter.
- Information about you — the author — such as a resume, writing sample, or already published work.
- Query letters are not necessary. Response will be mailed within six months.
