[SOLD OUT OF PITCH APPOINTMENTS]
Amy Stern is a literary agent the Sheldon Fogelman Agency.
She began in 2010 as an agent assistant and has spent the past five years taking on additional responsibilities while not quite believing that she gets to work with children’s books as her job.
After receiving degrees in English and creative writing at Bryn Mawr College and masters degrees in children’s literature and library science at Simmons College, she interned at a literary agency and fell in love with the industry. In her copious spare time, she mentors writing students at Simmons’s Center for the Study of Children’s Literature.
She is currently accepting picture book, middle grade, and young adult submissions from authors and illustrators, particularly if the work explores underrepresented identities.
She is open to picture book text submissions. She’s not your best bet for a heterosexual romance or historical fiction, but is open to pretty much anything else in all categories of kidlit.
She has probably looked at your Tumblr.
