Talia Benamy @taliabenamyPublishing is notoriously white, and it's on those of us with our feet in the door to open that door wider for everyone else. So for the month of June, I'm opening myself up to queries from Black children's book writers and artists. Please, DM them my way. #BlackLivesMatter
Ok agents. Give me some MG or YA journalist books in which kids on their school papers learn what it really means to be fair and balanced. The power of the press is real and amazing; let’s show young readers its might and its responsibility. #MSWL
On this #MSWL Day, I’m aiming high: Agents, I would be absolutely over the moon to get a modern-day Phantom Tollbooth. Adventure, innocence, sophistication, and my god the wordplay. My inbox awaits the next Lands Beyond.
