Join us for a queries and first pages panel with agent Kaitlyn Sanchez. Submit your work for a chance at live feedback from Kaitlyn and our panel–plus, of course, a publishing Q&A. This event is designed to be supportive, uplifting, encouraging–and 100% introvert-friendly. (Wear pajamas! We’ll never know.)
This event will work on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop, and is open to all genres.
Can’t make it live? A replay will be available at the same link. We’ll send you the link to send your work when you register. (Please check spam!)
Pages and queries will be drawn at random, by genre, and we will get through as many as we can.
Kaitlyn Leann Sanchez is a mom, wife, literary agent, middle school math teacher, and picture book author. She’s also the proud co-creator and co-host of the Spring Fling Kidlit Contest and Kidlit Zombie Week as well as creator and co-host of the Kidlit Fall Writing Frenzy Contest. In her free time, she loves to play soccer, binge-watch TV shows, and, of course, read, especially when she’s all cozied up with her husband and daughter reading together.
The stories I like to acquire range from emotional to funny. I also look for diversity all in forms, including, but not limited to, BIPOC, neurodiversity, and LGBTQ+.
For picture books, I enjoy all formats from character-driven to concept. I connect with lyrical writing (rhyme and non-rhyme) just as much as funny. I also enjoy nonfiction STEAM books and picture book biographies.
For novels, I lean towards historical fiction, mysteries, magical realism, humorous, and friendships stories.
