Leaping Hare Press feels it is possible to create change by being that change (thank you, Gandhi!). Our beautiful books inspire readers to translate ethical, environmental and spiritual values into practical and meaningful life choices. From wildflower seedbombing a concrete pocket of wasteland to mindfully walking along a busy sidewalk, our titles explore simple, creative steps that engage us as individuals with each other and the natural world. Leaping Hare Press proudly presents exciting, empowering subjects from expert, heart-driven authors. All of our lovely books embrace community spirit and ecological principles; share actions and practices that make a real, positive difference; and deliver the feel-good factor too.

Become an Leaping Hare Press Author
Leaping Hare Press, an imprint of Ivy Press, creates integrated, illustrated non-fiction books for the international market. Its imprints represent a broad spectrum of subject areas, including popular culture; art and design; crafts; general reference; health and parenting; mind, body, spirit; humor and novelty. Authors range from academics and writers who have published dozens of books, to people who are specialists in their particular area but haven’t written a book before. Ivy Press is always on the lookout for fresh talent, and will consider unsolicited book proposals from both published and unpublished authors.

A brief synopsis is better than a large quantity of manuscript. Projects should be original, topical and suitable for an international market. A typical proposal would include the following:
      A synopsis (an outline of the themes and features of the book)
      A brief author biography (including qualifications for writing the book)
      A table of contents (chapter titles and a line of two about each chapter’s contents)
      Sample text (an introduction to the book plus a sample chapter, if available.)

If we accept your proposal, Ivy Press will produce sales material (including blads, dummies and advance information sheets) for presentation at the major international book fairs in order to secure the best international market for your book.

 Ivy Press also is happy to hear from freelance writers who are interested in working on ideas, presentations and new titles.

Please send a biography, list of published titles, and areas of interest and expertise either by email or post to:
