Courtney Code


My Manuscript Wish List

Courtney Code (she/her) is an Editor at Abrams Books. Her list is made up of picture books and chapter books, with some select middle grade. She looks for stories that put the child reader first while packing an emotional punch. She’s particularly passionate about building an inclusive list that centers underrepresented creators and stories. Since joining Abrams in 2015, some of the extra-special projects she’s had the delight of working on include Manhattan by Jennifer Thermes, Chicks Rule! by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and Renée Kurilla, How I Learned to Fall Out of Trees by Vincent X. Kirsch, and The Derby Daredevils series by Kit Rosewater with illustrations by Sophie Escabasse.
