Welcome to Inside the Publishing World Wednesday! Today I am looking at a publisher you might not have heard about before, Mighty Media Press, a publishing house focused on children's publishing.
Who are they?
A children's publishing house based in Minneapolis, MN. Their mission is "to deliver captivating books and media that ignite a child’s curiosity, imagination, social awareness, and sense of adventure." They not only sell books, but also e-books, audiobooks, animation, and graphic novels.
What do they want?
"We seek out stories that leap off the page. We challenge our readers to think differently, be adventurous, build forts, find shapes in the clouds, explore new perspectives, be compassionate, and grow up to be mighty adults."
From what I can tell, they focus mostly on picture books, early readers and middle grade in both fiction and nonfiction. Their most common genres appear to be adventure, mystery, real life issues, and humor. In nonfiction they lean towards food and nutrition.
A book MUST have all four of their core mission parts- curiosity, imagination, social awareness, and sense of adventure.
According to their website, they want authors who will work in a partnership with them to produce these amazing books for kids.
