Young Authors Publishing is a children’s and young adult book publisher that exists to share the stories of Black & Brown children. We believe that all kids are story-worthy and should see themselves reflected in the books they read. We also believe in writing our future, so we publish books that reflect how diverse our world is. Our two-part mission is to produce diverse and culturally relevant children's books and to use book publishing as a vehicle for economic mobility for our young authors.
What We Do
Young Authors participate in a 1-month 'Experience Program' where they are paired with a trained writing mentor that helps them conceptualize and write their very own children's book. Once the manuscript is completed, our young authors attend workshops to learn the fundamentals of financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and public speaking in an effort to ensure they have the tools they need to succeed as successful published writers. Young Authors Publishing is on a mission to empower the authors of tomorrow, using their words to change the dialogue around representation in literature.
