Scribble is a vibrant, eclectic list of illustrated books for children by brilliant writers and artists from around the world. We have offices in Melbourne and London.
Miriam has been a book-cover designer for over a decade, working in Melbourne and London. Miriam returned to Melbourne in 2011 and took up the role of Art Director at Scribe. In 2016 she launched Scribe’s first picture-book imprint, Scribble. She is one of the founders and current Vice President of the Australian Book Designers Association.
Her favourite book as a child was The Quangle Wangle’s Hat by Edward Lear, featuring Helen Oxenbury’s illustration. And her favourite colour is the sky just before it gets dark. She is also mother to a toddler with a cheeky smile and an insatiable taste for dill pickles.

Do you publish ebooks?
We love making real books—books that you can hold and smell, books that you can keep forever, and books that become part of a family’s memories. At the moment Scribble is focused on producing the best physical books we can make and we’re not currently publishing our titles digitally.
Can I submit my book idea to Scribble?
Scribble is currently closed for submissions. We will be accepting your picture book manuscripts throughout June 2017. Please check back here closer to the date for our submissions guidelines.
How can I request a review copy?
Please contact our brilliant publicist Lilly O’Gorman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for all review copy requests.
