Picture Book Critique w/ Literary Agent Jill Corcoran

Most of you know me for repping Chapter Books, Middle Grade and Young Adult, and that is the mainstay of my work. BUT, I am now also repping a very select list of picture book writers.

To celebrate, I am offering a Picture Book critique as part of  Vermont College of Fine Arts and Hunger Mountain's Spring fundraising auction.

Vermont College of Fine Arts is a national center for education in the arts, fostering the excellence of emerging and established artists and advancing the arts to create a more humane world. VCFA is the only graduate school in the country devoted exclusively to fine arts education, and the first independent college to form in Vermont since 1983. Offering nationally successful Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees in Visual Art, Writing, Writing for Children & Young Adults, Music Composition and Graphic Design, VCFA’s alumni are among the most celebrated authors and artists working today.

Hunger Mountain: the VCFA Journal of the Arts, is a non-profit literary journal published in Montpelier, Vermont. Hunger Mountain is both a print publication and an online destination for readers, writers, artists and art lovers. Our mission is to cultivate engagement with and conversation about the arts by publishing high-quality, innovative literary and visual art by both established and emerging artists, and by offering opportunities for interactivity and discourse. To learn more about Hunger Mountain, including contest and submission guidelines, visit

And btw, in case you are wondering....why picture books when everyone says they don't sell....I refer you to this fabulous article in the most recent Horn Book: Why We’re Still in Love with Picture Books (Even Though They’re Supposed to Be Dead) by Allyn Johnston and Marla Frazee


  1. What a fantastic article. I love (and have long been entertained by) all of the nuances in children's books/illustrations. Hurray for the magic of picture books!

  2. I love picture books! Thanks for sharing that beautiful article.

  3. I'm so excited I won the auction!! As a grad of VCFA, I'm thrilled to donate this money to them, and get a picture book critique from you to boot!
