As always, research each agent you query. Some only represent illustrators or author/illustrators and some aren’t currently open to submissions. Plus, agent guidelines vary and can change at any time. Good luck and happy querying!!

  1. Could you check on Lori Kilkelly at Rodeen, she is not on the face page as an agent now. And Rick Richter has a new agency Aevitas Creative Management, but I could have landed on an article from 2016 for this.


    1. Hard to find but according to Lori’s fb page, she’s still an agent there. Thanks for the input! I wasn’t sure how to categorize ZSH and Aevitas but I’ve changed it over to Aevitas now.


  2. Shari, I just found that Lori Kilkelly is starting a new agency for her clients and I have misplaced the name but it doesn’t have her name in the title. I will see if I can find it with Google search. It was on an SCBWI post.
