We’re always looking for new book ideas!

If you have an idea for a book, or a series of books, that you think would fit into the Brilliant Publications list, we’d like to hear about it.

We publish resources that aim to be a bit different from the norm so as to inspire and engage pupils and provide support for teacher across a wide range of curriculum areas. We are committed to publishing educational resources that make teaching and learning enjoyable and rewarding for both teachers and pupils. We focus on producing practical, well-designed books and other resources for teachers and others working with children aged 0–11 and with 11–14 year olds with special needs.

Please note: We have no plans to expand our list to include children’s picture books, novels for teenagers or adults or poetry books.
