Rowena Beresford is the Acquisitions Editor for Yellow Brick Books, an independent traditional publishing company she co-founded in 2016. Yellow Brick Books specialises in off-beat, quirky and humorous picture books and junior fiction that will inspire kids to fall in love with reading.


Rowena is also the founder of The Book Curator magazine, which keeps school librarians up-to-date with a wide range of fantastic fiction from independent and mainstream publishers, and equips them to better match those books to readers.

Rowena will be looking for picture book manuscripts, illustrators and early readers/junior fiction that tend towards the offbeat (our website has some word clouds that help identify the types of books we publish)
