Literary Agents Accepting Picture Book Submissions 2019-2020

Picture book authors sometimes fail to get offers for representation, or get offers from great agents, because they make false assumptions. For example, some authors of picture book believe the most successful picture book agents won’t give new picture book authors’ careers the attention they deserve. That’s not usually true. And it’s usually better to be represented by a powerful picture book agent with strong connections and a strong track record of sales, rather than one who’s with no track record who’s just getting established.

Consider querying the most powerful picture book agents and the most established picture book literary agencies. Don’t assume the most influential and successful picture book agents won’t offer to represent you or read your book. Even if you’re unpublished or a new picture book author. Some picture book publishing agents will be permanently closed or temporarily closed to queries. But not most of them. I know because I’ve helped approximately 150 authors, including picture book with little or no platform, and no publishing history, get offers for representation from some of the most powerful picture book agencies and agents.

Before you submit your book to a picture book literary agency, read this brief guide about how to find a picture book literary agent. You can greatly increase your chances of finding a picture book literary agent to offer representation if you follow these three steps.

Step 1: Follow the Rules for How to Write Picture Books

Be aware of the rules and norms for picture books. Is your word count within the expected range for picture books? Less than 1,000 words. And, these days, picture book agents and picture book publishers prefer picture books that are less than 750 words. You picture book should also be age-appropriate, suitable for young readers age 3-8. That’s the target market for picture books.

In other words, your book’s vocabulary, sentence length, and sentence structure should be geared toward that audience. And your picture book shouldn’t have too many characters because kids aren’t able to keep track of too many. And, again, you shouldn’t have that many characters a in book that’s less than 1,000 words anyway. You don’t need to follow all the rules or norms for writing picture books, but it’s good to be aware of them.
