Agent Spotlight Updates

All agent spotlights and interviews have been updated as of 7/15/2020, and many have been reviewed by the agents. Look for them to be fully updated again in 2023.


Happy Wednesday Everyone! I want to let you know about a great opportunity to submit to Emily van Beek at Folio Jr. Here is what she has to say about what she is actively looking for right now:

"*I need your help. If you know me, you know I'm not great at taking breaks. I'm ACTIVELY building my list right now. If you have stellar, fun, expansive, bright, fantastical, joyful, adventurous middle grade hiding somewhere, PLEASE query me. Tell your friends! Crow it from the rooftops! I'm standing by with my reading glasses on! The time is now!* (via email)

You can find out what else Emily is looking for by reading her updated agent spotlight. And help her out by sharing this post on your social media sites. Thanks so much! Emily and I appreciate it.
