A boutique young adult imprint publishing bestselling, award-winning, critically acclaimed, and commercial fiction
Inkyard Press publishes smart, engaging YA fiction across a variety of genres, from realistic contemporary to epic fantasy.
We are passionate about publishing diverse voices and giving our readers a chance to see themselves and each other in our books, with grateful acknowledgment to the work of Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop on the importance of “windows” and “mirrors” in literature.
Our YA list focuses on commercial stories across genres that appeal to older teens and an adult crossover audience. We want stories that pull you in and make you feel—whether it’s joy, sorrow, laughter, or empathy, or sometimes all of the above!
