Author Submissions

Era Publications specialises in books for schools K-9 and focuses on literacy materials that sell in Australia and overseas markets.

We commission author manuscripts; therefore it is highly unlikely that unsolicited manuscripts would coincide with our directions. However, occasionally some projects do require us to look for new authors in specific genres.


We most often commission fiction for literacy series at the junior, middle and upper primary levels. Authors work as part of a team and write to a brief. We no longer publish trade picture books.


Our works are currently commissioned from our established team of authors.

Teacher books

We create and commission teacher guides and resource books to support our literacy series.

Submission details

If you think that Era Publications may be suitable for your work and you wish to submit, please do the following:

  • Email a standard CV and tell us about you as a writer and/or teacher
  • Include your email address and a synopsis of your manuscript
  • Do not send valued manuscripts – send copies only as we do not return works unless a stamped, self-addressed envelope is supplied
  • Submissions should be addressed to our Senior Editor

Please note: Turnaround time for manuscripts can be between 6-12 weeks, depending on workload. We do not acknowledge receipts of manuscripts.

Thanks for considering publishing with Era. We greatly value our authors and illustrators.
