Candlewick Press

Candlewick Press

In 1992, Candlewick Press opened its doors as an independent children's publisher, and we remain an independent publisher today. As part of Walker Books Group, Candlewick Press enjoys a unique ownership structure which includes more than 100 employees in our US office, staff in our UK and AUS offices, plus more than 150 authors and illustrators..

Candlewick Press arrived on the scene with some of the highest-quality picture books anywhere. And in the years since then, our offerings have grown to encompass all ages, from board books to e-books, high-end novelty to cutting-edge fiction. What hasn't changed is our goal of excellence, our model of independence, and our commitment to the authors and illustrators who create our books and the readers who love them. Two decades and more than 2,000 awards and accolades later, we are as committed as ever to independent thinking and primed for a future that looks brighter than ever.

Candlewick Press is one of the fastest-growing children’s book publishers in the United States. Our reputation for excellence in creating beautiful, high-quality children’s books is accomplished through a staff of dedicated, focused, and energetic individuals who enjoy an innovative, team-oriented work environment and a very generous compensation and benefits package. Conveniently located in Somerville, Massachusetts, we are easily accessible by public transportation.

Candlewick Press is an equal opportunity employer. Every qualified applicant will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religious creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity, age, disability, mental illness, sexual orientation, genetics, pregnancy status, veteran or active military status, or other protected characteristic.
