An Overview of the Children’s Fiction Market

Buried in the Slushpile

The Children's Market Image

The Children’s Fiction Market can be divided into six areas based on age. Here’s a handy image with some quick references. Now remember, these are generalizations not hard and fast rules. There are original board books; however, the majority are concept books or books that are from picture books. For that matter, you can find middle grade novels under thirty-thousand words; however, many are thirty-thousand words or more.

If you would like a free PDF version of the image, friend my Facebook profile. You’ll find it along with the Submissions Workbook and the Critiquer’s Checklist in the Notes tab.
