Please contact us with any enquiry, although remember to check the FAQs below. If we have a local dealer or partner, we can get you in touch with the best person to deal with, at the very least.
Because of the large variety of book types and distribution models that we deal with, it can seem daunting at times. We are teachers first, so our point of departure is always about the student, but also about our fellow teachers, and how best to get great learning materials into everyone's hands. We will help you as best we can, but we are always happy to hear some good stories as well.
