Courtney Code


My Manuscript Wish List

Courtney Code is an Assistant Editor at Abrams Books for Young Readers and Amulet Books. She works on projects for young readers of all ages—from toddlers to teens. She most loves witty picture books with unexpected twists and novels (both middle grade and YA) that strike the perfect balance of humor and heart. If given more than 10 minutes, Courtney would talk your ear off about her latest jaunt to her beloved hometown New Orleans, her most epic fails and flails in this week’s yoga class, and her quest to find the most satisfying cup of coffee in the deepest corners of NYC.

Submission Guidelines

Agented submissions only, but unagented writers may book consultations (see below).


As a new addition from The Manuscript Academy, #MSWL’s sister company, we are now offering ten-minute e-meetings with a select group of our agents and editors to discuss your work, what you can do better–and how to maximize your chances in the submissions process. You’ll be able to pick from Skype, Hangouts, or a phone call–and, yes, this works internationally. Please see our FAQ, our step-by-step guide to booking your meeting, a list of participating agents and editors–and consider joining our Facebook group, a free, friendly community of writers cheering each other on through this process.

Please note: Meetings are posted once monthly, and then often sell out. If there are meetings available, you’ll see them bolded on the calendar below after clicking “Set Time Zone.”
