    I’d love to keep reading! Please send your query letter to with the full manuscript as an attachment and “PB Party” in the subject line. Thanks!

  • I’d LOVE to learn more about this journey. I do not know what this festival is or about and absolutely love when pbs educate not only young readers but adults. Please send to — for this submission, an attachment is fine. Put “PB Request” in the subject line and also note what other submission-ready projects you have available (you don’t need to add pitches, I’m interested more that you have a scope of work). Thank you!
