From the Red Deer Press guidelines:

Red Deer Press is looking for quality writing for children across the ages, from picture books to young adult fiction and non-fiction. Currently we have less interest in picture book manuscripts, and are focusing more on middle grade and young adult fiction.

Submissions may be made by email or through regular mail. Please send only one manuscript at a time. Manuscripts should be legibly typed, double-spaced, with the author’s name and contact information clearly indicated on the cover page. Submissions should always include a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) with sufficient Canadian postage to return the manuscript or a reply.
