Larrikin House


Larrikin House is open for submissions for Children’s Picture Story Books.

We are looking for funny, quirky & original stories pitched at children ages 3-6.

Your story should be up to but not more than than 500 words, written in prose or rhyme.

If rhyme, please aim for thirteen - fourteen four line stanzas.

If your funny story submission is successful, we will offer you an industry standard publishing contract in line with expectations from the Australian Society of Authors. (ASA)

Once an agreement has been reached, our editing / illustration team will then be engaged to work with you to develop your concept from start to finish, and final works will be sold through all the major sales channels.

All stories must be original content, age appropriate and submitted in PDF or .docx /.doc format.

Please do not include actual illustrations unless you are the illustrator, however, please feel free to describe your concepts for illustrations in the document margins. Don’t forget to include your name and a little about yourself.

Please email your submission to:

I look forward to hearing from you.
