This article was recently published on literary agent Linda Epstein's blog:

https://theblabbermouthblog.com/2017/07/10/your-picture-book-manuscript-questions-answered/

Though much of it is general information you may already know, there are some timely tidbits about what agents have a hankering for right now.

(By the way, Linda is currently closed to submissions, herself.)

Best, best, best, best wishes, my fellow PBers!!!!

Thanks for sharing this, carrots! The bit about editors looking for PBs for the very young right now was interesting. I recently read an article about a surge in demand for board books being on the horizon.

Thanks, carrots! I wrote a very short picture book several years ago . . . my former agent liked it, but thought it was too short.  You've given me fresh hope. :)

This was interesting, carrots. Thank you.  Had a look around and there was a closet full of stuff! https://www.scbwi.org/boards/Smileys/default/goodpost.gif
