We only have what we give. ― Isabel Allende
Organized by Michelle Cusolito, the benefit is another example of the extreme generosity of the children’s literature community, which has offered benefits for earthquake victims in Japan, public schools, and cancer survivors, to name only a few. Proceeds from this particular auction will go directly to Mercy Corps and UNICEF.
Jessica and I will be offering a combined author/agent query critique + 15pp critique package. When you’re ready to submit your pages, I’ll critique your query and first 15pp. You’ll then have time to revise (if you so desire) before sending your query to Jessica. If she requests, you’ll have your partial polished and ready to go. If she doesn’t, she’ll give a detailed query critique to help you as you query other agents.

It’s an offer you can’t refuse! So please do go to KidLit for the Philippines and consider our critique package, or one of the other auction items. One thing that has caught my eye, and that I would do if I had a picture book ready is this amazing critique + jump the line offer by the brilliant and wonderful Kate Messner. Other offerings include full manuscript critiques, a website design consultation, and portfolio reviews!
