HarperCollins Canada

Thanks for your interest in publishing with HarperCollins Canada. HarperCollins does not accept unsolicited submissions or query letters.

If you are interested in writing for adults, we recommend that you connect with a literary agent who can guide you through the publishing process. For information on finding the appropriate agent, we recommend that you talk to the staff at your local bookstore or library, be in touch with your local writing school, or consult resources such as the Literary Marketplace (http://www.literarymarketplace.com). The Association of Canadian Publishers has a comprehensive list of Canadian publishers and agents accepting queries (http://publishers.ca/index.php/get-published). You can also visit our site for writers, Authonomy.

If you are a writer or illustrator for children and young adults, we recommend looking into the Canadian Children's Book Centre, which maintains a list of Canadian children's publishers currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts and artwork. It may be purchased alone or as part of Get Published: The Writing for Children Kit. http://bookcentre.ca/product-category/get-published/.

We wish you the best of luck with your project.
