Somewhere is an imprint of Ayin Press that publishes children’s books, art books, comics, zines, and other graphic and illustrated works.

Universal in scope, Somewhere is a play on the concept of utopia—whose etymology in Latin means no-place. Rather than dwell in abstraction, our books seek to make imagined worlds as tangible as possible—easily visitable for both children and adults alike.

At once classic and experimental, Somewhere is a place to explore the limits of our imagination and deepen our connection with the world.

We are accepting submissions of all kinds, currently with special interest in children’s books and other illustrated works.


Ayin Press is a nonprofit organization, and we depend on support from our community (readers, artists, authors, collaborators, and beyond) to do our work. Your $5 submission fee helps make it possible for us to carefully read and consider your work. Thank you!


Our estimated response time is 7-10 months, and we do accept simultaneous submissions; just let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Please note that we are unable to respond to inquiries about the status of your submission. We will let you know when we’ve had a chance to review!
