Aurora Krick @helloaurora_k

If an agent passes during a pitch contest (in person or virtual), should one still continue to query same agent via good ole’ QM? Incase their mind...changes?(please don’t laugh, honest question)#askagent
Replying to @helloaurora_k

If they passed on that project specifically, then I wouldn't query them again. But if it was pitched on a Twitter contest where they may have been participating but didn't comment on your Twitter pitch one way or the other, I would say go ahead and query. #askagent

Sara Kruger @sarakruger

What are you looking for when you ask for "target audience" for a picture book. #askagent
Replying to @sarakruger

I don't ask that question specifically in my QM form, but what they might be getting at is if this is a younger (say, preschool) audience or an older picture book. #Picturebooks can technically go up to age 8-12, depending on the subject matter (usually NF) and voice. #askagent

Mary Ann Siegel @MaryAnnSiegel

#askagent What about the fairness and validity of "non-own voices" writing PBs in a culture other than their own? Does it make it OK if they've used sensitivity readers and have a knowledge of that culture from friends, family etc?
Replying to @MaryAnnSiegel

This is a tough question, but as an author, sometimes I'll have an idea and ask myself "Am I the person that should be telling this story?" and/or, "Is this my story to tell?" and if I don't feel 1000% percent comfortable that it's my space, I leave that space open. #askagent

Brittany J. @heybrittanyj

#askagent with the world in its current state, what is the best way to go about the process of becoming a literary agent?
Replying to @heybrittanyj

Publishing is still very much an apprenticeship industry, so finding a paid internship is your best bet to getting a foot in the door! I found my internship by networking at a writer's conference, where an author offered to pass my resume along to her agent. #askagent

Reader question: I used CreateSpace for a fundraiser and have completely revamped the book. Is this still previously published? #AskAgent #Amquerying tracymarchini.com/2019/05/29/is-…
