New Marketing Entries Gleaned from recent issues of Children’s Writer.
Jenny Bent started The Bent Agency in 2009 and is now joined by Susan Hawk, who is looking for writers of Middle Grade and YA novels. Send her literary novels with strong character development, especially if they are fantastical, history-based mysteries for boys. But she’s pretty much open to anything. She was raised in Bethesda, MD and has worked as marketer for the Penguin Group. Check out the website for submissions information. www.thebentagency.com. But do not send her picture books or textbooks.
If you have a background in the Seventh Day Adventist Church, the Pacific Press Publishing Association’s magazine, Primary Treasure, is looking for articles relevant to children in grades 1 to 4 who attend Sabbath School. Stories must be true and must relate to how a child learns about her relationship to the Creator. www.primarytreasure.com (More information about this magazine may be found on page 198 of the Magazine Markets for Children’s Writers 2010.)
Cedar Fort is another religion affiliated press—this time the Church of Later Day Saints (Mormon)—but they do publish stories for the general, trade market and are looking for authors to write middle-grade or YA novels. They also have an interest in non-fiction, but do want the stories to be uplifting. Their website is www.cedarfort.com and they are listed on page 156 in Book Markets for Children’s Writers 2010.
Thank you, Sarah!
