I just wanted to update the list of YA publishers that are accepting submissions directly that pay advances. I'm including some small publishers (that don't pay advances) but that are on the rise and have been doing well in the YA market. Some of these publishers I have listed in the past, but will list again. Some are new to the list, so check carefully. Let's begin!
Flux Books: offers advances on some books
Entangled: romance first
Charlesbridge: now accepting email submissions
Page Street: Mac Millan distributes
Bold Strokes: LGBTQIA
Small Publishers (no advance)
Pen Name Press
So there you have it! If you know of any more to add to the list, feel free to contact me.
Always read all the guidelines, be professional when emailing! And most of all good luck to you!!!
