Kar-Ben Publishing
241 First Ave. No.,
Minneapolis, MN 55401



Kar-Ben publishes 15-20 new titles each year. All are books on Jewish themes for children and families. We are happy to review unsolicited manuscripts and artistsí samples.

We consider fiction and non-fiction for preschool through middle school, including holiday books, life-cycle stories, Bible tales, folktales, stories about Israel, Jewish history, Jewish heroes, and any other Jewish topic of your imagination. In particular, we are looking for stories that reflect the rich cultural diversity of today's Jewish family.

We do not publish games, textbooks, or books in Hebrew.

Your story should be concise, have interesting, believable characters, and action that holds the readersí attention. Good prose is far better than tortured verse.

We preferred that manuscripts be e-mailed as a Word document attachment. Donít forget to check spelling, grammar, facts and typos. It is not necessary or desirable to include art or art direction with your text. Unfortunately, we do not have the time to critique unsolicited manuscripts. 

We offer contracts based on royalty.

Thank you for your interest in Kar-Ben Publishing

(While we try to respond to all inquiries, if you do not receive a response from us within three months, we have likely decided not to publish your manuscript.)
