We’re always looking for new writers and artists to work with, but as a new a publisher, our resources and time is limited. Every title we develop becomes part of the Stray Books family, being promoted, sold, and a part of who we are for years. As much as we love working with new talent and developing unique books, or ability to do so is limited. Currently, we are not accepting unsolicited manuscripts or pitches due to that limitation.
