After 14 years in childrens’ and educational publishing, we at Squid Press were left wondering…
Why is every children’s book written and/or illustrated by grownups?
The best stories we’ve ever heard have been told by kids.
The best art we’ve ever seen has been created by kids.
There must be some way to empower these natural young authors and illustrators to showcase their work alongside the traditional authors and illustrators.
Their stories are just as valid.
Their art is just as amazing… maybe moreso.
Our mission is to enable anyone a chance to publish a book and become a bestseller… even grownups.
We want to stimulate literacy and creativity:
• through innovative writing and art programs
• inclusive programs and resources
