My Manuscript Wish List®

I represent children’s literature, including picture books, middle grade, and young adult fiction, as well as select nonfiction. I’m looking for quirky, offbeat stories, or stories we’ve heard before but that are told in a new way or with a unique slant or point of view. Some of the topics I’m interested in are: women’s issues, feminism, equality, diversity, GLBTQ stories, Jewish stories, the environment, climate change, history, the social sciences, and STEM topics. I’m eager to work with people of color and other authors who are under represented in publishing. Also, I don’t like to read super scary things.

Fun facts about me:

I’m a bit allergic to cute things. I have an unapologetic potty mouth.

Submission Guidelines

I am open to picture book, chapter book, middle grade, and YA submissions for the month of November 2020.  I am particularly interested in getting submissions from BIPOC and Latinx authors. Please send the first 20 pages of your manuscript or your full picture book manuscript. I am currently only taking submissions through the Query Manager form.
