If you are an SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) member, I hope you take the time to read Insight when it arrives in your e-mail. This means that you need to click through and read entire articles, all the way to the bottom. Because if you do, you’ll see things like this exclusive opportunity for SCBWI members.
Throughout October, all of the agents of the Bent Agency will take submissions throughout the month of October from SCBWI members. Yes, that even means the agents who are closed to submissions.
Susan Hawk, the agent that I’m interested in is NOT closed to submissions but I’m a little concerned that if they get too many submissions that could change. So in spite of the fact that I’m drafting an entire book in about a week (15000 words), I need to get that query letter finished and send in my submission now while she’s still open.
I hope that some of you take the time to find a piece of work that is suitable for one of these agents. And, if you have something, good luck with your submission!
