Imprints

No....I'm not talking about Jacob and Renesme.  I'm talking about finding that perfect publisher for a good story.  Each one with their own audience, type of book published and submission guidelines.


Here are some examples of children's and YA imprints, by publisher.*

Macmillan - includes FSG, St. Martins, Bloomsbury/Walker, Feiwel&Friends, Holt, Roaring Brook, Tor among others


Penguin - includes Dial, Dutton, Putnam, Viking, Razorbill, Puffin, among others


HarperCollins - includes HarperTeen, Katherine Tegan Books, Rayo, Balzer&Bray, among others


Random House - Knopf, Bantam/Delacorte/Dell, Schwartz&Wade, Wendy Lamb Books, RH Kids, among others


Simon & Schuster - Atheneum, McElderry, Little Simon, Beach Lane, Pulse, among others.


Scholastic - AAL, Scholastic Press, Orchard, among others. 
Then there are places that I consider "one-and-done", where the editors seem to work together more and don't really have significant divisions, including CandlewickChronicle,Egmont, HyperionLittle Brown, FluxSterling,Sourcebooks etc. They might have different lines for different types of books (like Sourcebooks Fire YA line, Little Brown's Poppy line or Candlewick Sparks early readers) but those don't quite constitute their own departments with their own dedicated staff.
