At Working Partners, we believe that great stories and unique voices go hand-in-hand to create successful, engaging books. The publishing industry always needs new talent, and organizations like SCBWI go a long way to assist committed aspiring writers in standing out from the crowd.
We are keen to support unpublished writers and believe in helping writers develop. It is a long-standing policy for our editorial team to offer constructive criticism to every writer who tries out for one of our projects. We are proud to work with a number of writers who found their first publication credit with us and then went on to become well established in their own right.
Working Partners were delighted to sponsor all the anthologies so far and look forward to the next. This exciting SCBWI initiative provides a great vehicle for showcasing strong new talent to publishers and agents.
Since 1994, we have created some of the most recognised series in children’s fiction, including Animal Ark, Heartland and, more recently, Rainbow Magic, Warriors, Beast Quest, Magic Animal Friends and Secret Explorers. Working Partners has sold nearly 200 published projects, consisting of almost 2,000 books. Warriors has sold more than 40 million copies globally, and Beast Quest has sold over 20 million copies.
RightsPeople, Working Partners’ sister company, has to date licensed our books in over 40 languages. Working Partners is also now actively developing projects for TV, with nearly 15 series under option, in co-development, or in co-production.
