if it’s too difficult for grown-ups, write for children

VOICES HEARD: By KT Literary and The Word

If you saw our recent post about closing to queries and are worried that means you won’t have a chance to get your manuscript in front of us this summer, don’t fret! T’m truly thrilled to announce that we are partnering with the Word, a local Denver non-profit organization working to build a publishing community that will fight for inclusivity, for the first ever Voices Heard project. The Voices Heard project is a special opportunity to query to be taken on as a new client with KT Literary’s experienced agents—an opportunity open specifically to writers from underrepresented backgrounds!

Throughout the month of July, KT agents will be closed to all submissions outside of the Voices Heard project.

If selected through the project, writers have the chance to learn from the knowledge of these experienced agents by having a sample of an unpublished manuscript read by an agent and receiving feedback within 2 weeks of submission. And of course (let’s not forget this part!) selected writers may be taken on as new clients with KT Literary!

For more information, please go to the Voices Heard website. There you’ll find information on how to apply, tips and resources, an interview with Kate, and soon, recaps of Twitter Q&As with all of the agents of KT Literary, as well as our manuscript wish lists, backgrounds, and more.

Our first live Twitter #AskAgent Q&A will be tomorrow, Thursday, June 12th at 2pm Mountain. Follow @ktliterary and @wordisdiversity, as well as the hashtag #VoicesHeard for all the news and information!!

And get those fantastic queries ready!
