For all Children's/YA authors

If you have a great book for young people aged between 5-21 years old and would like your book to be in our goody bags? We would need a paperback copy of the book sent to us, but first, please email us at a blurb, the genre and the age range.

We accept traditional and self-published books.

Hashtag Press

Hashtag Press was officially established in October 2016 by Helen Lewis and Abiola Bello (co-founders of The Author School) building on decades of combined experience in publishing, PR, writing, research, media and journalism.

Having worked with hundreds of authors since the start of The Author School, we recognised a niche in the industry for an honest, trustworthy, high calibre, publishing consultancy that offers authors the best possible service.
